This opening date will be subject to an ongoing review based on the evolving situation taking into account any new guidelines as determined by the HSE and it may be necessary to impose operating restrictions based on whatever guidelines apply at the time of opening.


Based on the current assumption of the opening meeting taking place on Sunday 5th April entries will open on Monday 23rd March and close on Thursday 26th March, only horses that are compliant with the 28 day trainer declaration and for which a current flu vac scheduled has been submitted to the IHRA Office are eligible for entry, equally the associated owners, trainers & drivers will have to be fully licensed for the 2020 season to be eligible to compete.


The newly purchased Trotteur Francais racehorses following the recent Le Trot sale will be eligible subject to an online trainer declaration being completed by Friday 20th March.
