Catalogue Standards Varied

Fourth-placed finishes no longer count wef 1 Jan 2020

The European sub-committee of the International Cataloging Standards Committee and the Society of International Thoroughbred Auctioneers has agreed upon changes to a pair of catalogue rules.

From 1 January 2020 all fourth-position finishes will no longer count as placed.

The change will not be retrospective, so fourth-place finishes prior to 1 January 2020 will still be described as placed in catalogues.

From 1 January Β 2019 certain Graded AQPS flat races have been admitted to Part IV of the International Cataloguing Standards and performances and can therefore be allocated Restricted Jumps Black Type in Jumps/ National Hunt Catalogues from 1 May 2019.

This change will be retrospective to include 2018 AQPS Graded Races.

  1. Despite being included in catalogues – the 4th place finishes never qualified a horse for ‘black type’ – so, any horse whose only Graded/Group/Listed placing was, in fact solely a 4th – would have had the place mentioned – but the horse would not have qualified for ‘black type’ – this having always been reserved only for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd finishers in qualifying races.
