PART 6 - PROCESSING AFTER ENTRY - (F)83 to (F)114
96. Requirement to run after declaration to run stage
96.1 If a qualified horse has been declared a runner in a race under this Part, the horse must run in the race provided that it has not been eliminated under Rules 102 and 103 or, having been declared as a reserve, it is subsequently allocated a run.
96.2 A horse must not be left declared to run in two or more races on the same day once the deadline has passed for making declarations to run in each race.
96.3 No horse may run in two or more races run on the same day.
96.4 In the event of any failure to comply with this Rule
- 96.4.1 a financial penalty of £140 shall be imposed on the Trainer of the horse or, if the horse is not in the care of a Trainer, on the Owner, and
96.4.2 instead of or in addition to imposing such a penalty, the Stewards may decide to take other Disciplinary Action against that Trainer or Owner if they consider that the circumstances of the horse's failure to run make it appropriate for them to so.
96.5 In any case where the horse has been declared for a race but is not qualified to run in the race, a financial penalty of £140 shall also be imposed on the Trainer of a horse or, if the horse is not in the care of a Trainer, on the Owner.
96.6 In any case where a horse is left declared to run in two or more races on the same day, other than provided for in Rule 98, the Trainer of the horse will be liable to further Disciplinary Action in addition to the penalty under Paragraph 96.4.1. Furthermore, the circumstances specified in Rules 97.2 to 97.7 do not apply when a horse is declared for two races on the same day.
- 96.7.1 Paragraphs 96.1 and 96.5 do not apply if the horse does not run in any of the circumstances specified in Rules 97.2 to 97.7,
96.7.2 Paragraphs 96.1 and 96.2 do not apply in any of the circumstances specified in Rule 98 or 99, and
