PART 8 - HANDICAPPING, PENALTIES, QUALIFICATIONS AND ALLOWANCES - (F)132 to (F)143


143. Rider's allowances: supplementary provisions

143.1 For the purposes of this Rule, Rider's Allowance means an allowance in accordance with Rule 140, 141 or 142.
143.2 Nothing in this Part restricts the races to be taken into account in

143.2.1 calculating any rider's allowance under Rules 140 to 142, or
143.2.2 determining qualification for any race which is confined to Apprentice Jockeys, Conditional Jockeys or Amateur Riders on the flat,

and, accordingly, all races must be taken into account for those purposes apart from Arabian horse races and point to point steeple chases.

143.3 Any Rider who claims a rider's allowance must ensure that he claims the correct weight.
143.4 Any Rider who is entitled to claim a rider's allowance must, within 48 hours of his return to Great Britain, inform The Racing Calendar Office of any winners he has ridden in another country.
143.5 Where an Overseas Rider who would otherwise be entitled to claim a rider's allowance in a race has been declared as the Rider of a horse under Rule 92, he may not claim the allowance unless, by the time determined in accordance with Rule 92 for making declarations of riders, he or the Trainer of the horse (or the trainer's Authorised Agent) has provided The Racing Calendar Office with the Rider's age and the details of any winners ridden by him.
143.6 Unless the Authority directs otherwise, a Rider must claim a rider's allowance to which he is entitled until 3 clear days after the day on which he reaches the maximum number of winners appropriate to the allowance.
So, for example, if he has on a Tuesday reached the maximum number of winners permissible, the rider's allowance can still be claimed on the immediately following Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but not on the Saturday.
143.7 Where a weight allowance for a Rider is specified in the conditions of a race, but the race is not within Rule 140, 141 or 142, a Person who, 3 clear days before the race, is entitled to claim the weight allowance shall remain entitled to do so irrespective of any winners he may ride in those 3 days.
So, for example, if he has ridden the winner of a race on a Tuesday, the weight allowance specified in the conditions of the race can still be claimed on the immediately following Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but not on the Saturday.
143.8 Any Rider who is entitled to claim a rider's allowance must do so, unless the Authority has directed that no rider's allowance will be claimed by a particular Rider in flat races or steeple chases, hurdle races or National Hunt Flat Races.
