    Stewards News 2

    The introduction of AHRR 155A provides that should a horse break gait clear of interference, and remain in the incorrect gait as it passes the finish line, that it mandatorily be placed behind any horse which is covering the horses’ body providing that horse is in its correct gait.

    This should make rulings a bit more cut and dried

    Absurd ruling.

    So breaks anywhere else aren't of the same importance? What does it matter if a horse breaks on the line and actually loses ground. So what. No need to relegate them but they will be relegated in this instance.

    A horse neck and neck will be relegated the exact same as a horse nose and rump.

    Ok the rule is pretty clear but what happens if you gallop 100m out and get back into stride by the post. Adjudication of finishing position / gained advantage should not be any different just because you broke in a different part of the race.

    I suppose they could simplify it further - if you break without being checked you are disqualified (but then skipping will be a grey area)
    I know they disqualify in France - does that include on the line?

    Not sure how much the French rules differ (don't think too much, though...) but in Finland it is an automatic disqualification if they gallop or pace over the line. In addition to if they break for more than 150m at the start of the race, more than 100m elsewhere during the race, break more than twice during the race or break anywhere during the last 100m of the race.

    Wow!! Is this for real. Australia has adopted one of our rules. Usually the excuse to change our rules is to align with Oz.
    It is known here as the "lapped on" rule. It applies to horses who gallop across the finish line in a break when there are other finishers within a length behind.
    It only applies to crossing the finish line and provide definitive certainty whether a breaker holds or loses it's placing irrespective of gaining advantage when in a break over the line.
    What happens prior to the line is covered by other rules. Ours provides for auto disqualification if a break of more than 50m in final 200m or 150m prior to the final 200.

    $250 might not sound like much but when you read Trotguide you would have to say he is very stiff

    Not sold on needing a new thread because now have to search 2 threads if wanting to find old info but rest of us can't post in the original Stewards news thread you posted in earlier this arvo Kev. I'd suggest just keep one thread or at least start using this thread.

    Sorry about that Breno - I forgot about the new one
    I think it is worth having a new one because when you do a search using the search engine it will tell you what thread to find the key word in but not what page so if a thread is 50 pages long the search engine does not help you that much
