Sprints and Stayers Conditions and Race Information
All horses which start in a qualifying race, as defined in the Rules of Racing, will be eligible to enter THE SUMMER SPRINTERS’ AND STAYERS' HANDICAP SERIES (FINALS) to be run at Bath Racecourse on September 10th and September 11th respectively with a Minimum Total Prize Fund of £15000 in each final.
In the event of the abandonment of these qualifying races, any horse which has been declared to run in this race under the provisions of Rule (F)89, or any horse entered to run in this race if the time of the abandonment was prior to the declaration stage, will be qualified to enter the Finals. Any horse which has been eliminated from these qualifying races will also be eligible, subject to the Rules of Racing, to enter the Finals. The British Horseracing Authority will modify Part B of Schedule (F)8 for the purposes of the Final, such that a horse will gain protection from elimination by obtaining points throughout the series. Points will be awarded in each qualifier as follows: Winner-10 points, 2nd-8 points, 3rd-6 points, 4th-4 points, 5th-2 points, 6th-1 point. The horse obtaining the highest number of points will be afforded the greatest protection from elimination. In the event of two or more horses entering the Final with the same number of points, the horse allotted the lowest weight will be eliminated first. If two or more such horses have the same weight, their position in the elimination sequence will be allocated by random ballot.
