Programming update – No higher

Tuesday 14 November 2017

The Programming Sub-committee at its recent meeting reviewed the decision that the option to nominate “No Higher” not be permitted except when nominating for a maiden event.

Written submissions and a petition were tabled together with the comments and feedback which had been provided to each of the committee members, both for and against the option.

Tasracing has accepted the recommendation of the Programming Sub Committee that the option to nominate “No Higher” will continue to be excluded except when nominating for a Maiden event.

This decision will again be reviewed at the January 2018 meeting of the Programming Sub-Committee to recommend whether or not the exclusion will be continued past 31 January 2018.

Trainers are again invited to provide any feedback, either positive or negative to the imposition of the restriction, including identifying any specific impact the exclusion has had, by Monday 18 December 2017.
