LAHORE, April 9: In order to hold clean and fair racing all race horse owners have been directed to try their horses running in races. Chairman Lahore Race Club (LRC), Tariq Aziz held a meeting with the owners and told them that if any horse was not found on try out he will be debarred from taking part in races.
He further informed them that if a horse was declared to run, that meant he was racing fit and if his rider did not try his mount he will be penalised and suspended from riding.
Tariq Aziz asked the owners not to pressurise the handicapper. If they had any complaint against wrong handicapping, they should bring it to the notice of LRC secretary in writing. All complaints will be disposed of on merit and justice would be done, he assured them.
He further directed the riders to stick to their lanes while riding in races. If they want to take over any horse they should keep at least two lengths distance to avoid any mishap. Those failing to observe the said rule may result in disqualification of their mount from the race. Moreover they should ride their mounts according to their nature and their distance.—AG
