There are TWO OPEN races at this meeting. The races will be held prior to the Point-to-Point Races.
Should the Safety Factor (10) be exceeded for both races, only ONE will be divided if the organisers so choose, in this instance there will be a ballot for the race which does NOT divide. Ponies may not be led to the start.
A trophy will be awarded for each race to the highest placed 138cms & under and 148cms & under combinations which qualified with the Cambs with EC hunt in the current season.
The De La Sayette Challenge Trophy will be awarded to the leading Novice rider from the East Anglian Area during the season. (Rider not to have won a pony race before the start of the 2018 season).
The Mark Weatherhead Challenge trophy will be awarded to the leading rider at Horseheath during the season.
The following points will be awarded for both trophies: 10 for a win, 6 for second, 4 for third and 2 for fourth.
Combinations placed 1st & 2nd in BOTH races will qualify for the East Anglian Area Finals respectively at Fakenham Racecourse on Sunday, 3rd June.
In the event of races being oversubscribed and balloting taking place, combinations qualified with East Anglian Hunts will take preference.
