7. ELIMINATIONS
Notwithstanding anything contained hereunder, any horse more than 1,5kg
"under sufferance" in ANY race, will not be exempt from elimination under any
circumstance.
7.1 Elimination Practices applicable to Race Meetings run at Turffontein,
the Vaal and Fairview
7.1.1 Merit Ratings for the purposes of Elimination
Notwithstanding anything contained herein, the following shall apply for
elimination purposes in Maiden Plates and to maidens in other Plate
races:-
7.1.1.1 No horse shall be given a gross merit rating of less than 99 on
the basis of its first and/or second run.
7.1.1.2 All horses having their first start shall be given a gross merit
rating of 100.
7.1.2 Elimination on Barrier Draw
If one or more horses in the following situations have to be eliminated,
- with identical net merit ratings in handicap races
- with identical gross merit ratings in plate races (other than Maiden
Juvenile Plates)
- in terms of Conditions 7.2.7 and 7.3.8 in Maiden Juvenile Plates,
then eliminations will be decided on barrier draw as follows:-
7.1.2.1 In races down a straight, from the lowest barrier draw upwards.
7.1.2.2 In races around a turn, from the highest barrier draw downwards.
7.1.3 Preference regarding Riders
Trainers declaring two or more runners may state a preference regarding
the Riders declared by them and should one or more of their runners
be eliminated from a race, they may change Riders on their declared
runner or runners.
7.1.4 Eliminations when Races are Combined
When two races are combined into one race and the combined total of
declarations exceeds the maximum field size for the race, elimination shall
follow the usual procedure for the type of race involved but commencing
from the race that attracted the fewer number of declarations. In the event
of both races having attracted the same number of declarations, then
elimination shall be from the combined event in the usual manner. In the
event of a Rider being declared for more than one horse in a combined
race, unless the parties agree otherwise, the Rider shall be required to
ride the horse for which he has an engagement in the race that attracted
the most declarations. In the event of both races attracting the same
number of declarations and unless the parties agree otherwise, then the
decision as to which horse the Rider shall ride shall be decided by barrier
draw in the combined race, as detailed in Condition 7.1.2.1 or 7.1.2.2.

7.1.5 Eliminations when a Race is Divided
when a race is divided in terms of Condition 4.1, the race shall first be
divided and then, if eliminations are necessary in one or more of the races,
eliminations shall take place in terms of Conditions 7.2, 7.3 or 7.4, as the
case may be.
7.1.6 Discretionary Power of the Company
Unless otherwise stated in the Race Requirements, the Company grants the
Handicapper the right to establish the field in any Feature Race or Juvenile
Plate. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Condition 7,

declarations, to
7.1.6.1 exempt any horse from the application to it of these Conditions
governing eliminations.
7.1.6.2 eliminate any horse from a race.
7.1.7 Error in Eliminations
Any error in elimination found subsequent to the dissemination of the final
fields shall stand.

Employees, Contractors and/or Agents in the event that, for whatsoever
reason the horse so eliminated is excluded from the final fields of a race
meeting.

race for which a Trainer has failed to declare his intention to accept,
then that horse shall be the first to be eliminated. If however, there

horses/s shall be eliminated

declare his intention to accept with the horse, then, after applying
