Horses may be exempt from the ‘last 4 starts in NSW’ condition only if continuously trained by a registered NSW Trainer for the previous 12 months.

  1. Horses must be stabled 100km or more by shortest road distance from Club Menangle.

  2. The trainer of the horse(s) which have qualified for a Final must remain as the trainer for the Final and likewise the horse must be stabled at the trainer’s registered stables up to the respective Final. Application must be made to HRNSW for any variation to this rule.
