The Executive Committee, at its meeting held on October 11th, decided to increase the number of runners for the Classic Club sponsored Champion Stakes (dog) to 16 runners.
The decision was taken to facilitate additional All-Age runners in this prestigious event and to add a new dimension to the opening day of the National Meeting 2013 given the new format which now commences on Saturday, Feb 2nd, 2013
FRESHFORD will course two days earlier than originally scheduled.
The Annual two day meeting will take place now on Thursday and Friday 1st and 2nd November.
Featuring the Handsome Billa Purdon Cup for 16 All Ages, Derby Trial Stake (32) and Reserve Oaks Trial Stake.
