Racing NSW has introduced new rules restricting the frequency a horse can participate in a New South Wales thoroughbred race.

Three rules have been implanted on Tuesday and will be enforced from July 1.
  • HORSES are allowed to race no more than five times during a 30-day period;
  • HORSES are permitted to contest two races that are two clear days or less apart just once within a 30-day period; and
  • HORSES aged two years aren't allowed to race on consecutive days.
Racing NSW have added a further clause which allows them discretionary powers to reject any nomination or entry when a horse has a frequency of starts which, in their opinion, is considered detrimental to the welfare of the horse.
