Feature Stakes Reduced

Subsidies are also set to be cut

Champs de MarsThe Mauritius Turf Club held a meeting with trainers on Tuesday morning with regards to the 2015 season. The President of the Club, Mr Jeenarain Soobagrah attended this meeting.

Several topics were raised, including finances.

It was announced that stakes will remain unchanged, except for Group races which will see a slight reduction.

Subsidies are also set to be reduced.

Trainers expressed the hope that at least eight owners would be allowed to lead in their winning horses. This suggestion will undergo a trial period of one month before a final decision is made by the Board of Administrators.

The rule that an owner shall not have horses under the care of more than two trainers was also addressed. The 30th of June was set as the deadline for implementation.

The fixtures, transport of horses and treatment of horses were among other subjects raised during this meeting.
