Winter reminder for trainers

As racing gears up for its resumption, trainers around the country are being reminded to ensure that their horses’ brands can be easily identified.

Chief Stipendary Steward Nick Ydgren says “as we come into the cooler months they are to ensure horse brands are clearly visible at races, workouts and trials, and if they are not then they (the horses) will need to be clipped.

“Already at the trials we have a couple of difficulties and with the social distancing this makes things even more problematic.”

According to the Inspection of Horses regulation a horse’s freeze brand must be clearly distinguishable at all times.

The next trials are set down for Addington this Wednesday.
