PPA: Amendments to the Point-to-Point & Hunter Chase Race Planner

POSTED ON BEHALF OF THE POINT-TO-POINT RACING COMPANY

Following notification of important information being omitted from the 2013/14 National Planner, we have been asked circulate the following on behalf of the Point-to-Point Racing Company:

Amendments to the Point-to-Point & Hunter Chase Race Planner

A document with amendments to the National Sponsors’ section of the Point-to-Point & Hunter Chase Race Planner can be downloaded as a PDF from www.pointtopoint.co.uk.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The details of the Jockey Club Mares Maiden series of races were not included in the National Sponsors’ section of the planner (pages 32-39); please note the Jockey Club are offering not only the Champion Novice Mare Award, but also a Jockey Club Prize Money Bonus of up to £10,000 to the owners of the winning mare.

For this year, the PPORA Membership condition has been removed, so whether or not you are a member of the PPORA, you could be eligible to enter. The full page is attached for your reference.

The races in the series are flagged up on the relevant meeting pages of the Planner – all Jockey Club Open Maiden Races for Mares and Fillies carry the following strap-line:

“The first three past the post will score points for the Jockey Club Mares Maiden Series”

Also on the attachment is an amendment to the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (TBA) Countryside Alliance Club Mares’ Only series of races. Please note that the Ross Harriers Point-to-Point on Sunday March 2nd (page 155 of the Planner) does not carry a TBA Mares’ race; the meeting will, however, stage one of the Jockey Club Mares’ Maidens.

The Point-to-Point that will stage a TBA race in place of the Ross Harriers is the South Herefordshire at Garnons on Sunday March 16th (page 174 of the Planner). Again, this information is correct on the relevant meeting pages.
