BHA Releases Trainers’ Non-Runners Tables

The first tables of trainers’ non-runner rates were published as part of a series of measures with the objective of decreasing non-runner rates in British racing following an extensive review, the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) announced Monday. Separated between jump trainers’ non-runners table and flat trainers’ non-runners table, the BHA will begin publishing the non-runner rates quarterly (accessible here), with any trainer with more than 100 declarations in the period with 50% above the average non-runner rate being suspended from using self-certificates for 12 months. Trainers above the threshold, but not included within the published data (with fewer than 100 declarations during the previous 12 months) would have their individual situation reviewed. The non-runner rate threshold percentage would be 14% for flat racing and 12% for jumps racing, with automatic suspensions for trainers above the thresholds not being applied until the end of March 2018.
