Rule 149 – Qualifiers from ‘No Race’
In the event of a ‘No Race’ being declared in an eliminating round of a Race the following procedures apply in order of priority:
Priority 1 – There being only sufficient runners available for a re-run to provide the required number of qualifiers from that Race for the next round, the eliminating Race need not be re-run, and those Greyhounds available and passed fit by the Veterinary Surgeon to take part in a re-run may be treated as qualifying for the next round.
Priority 2 – Failing resolution by Priority 1 and subject to there being at least three clear Days between the No Race and the Day of the next round, the Greyhounds shall re-run over the same course and distance from the same starting positions.
Priority 3 – Failing resolution by Priorities 1 or 2, the Racing Manager will make a public draw to determine the qualifiers for the next round.
