"RD" – Rider Declared,
"NRD" – Non Rider Declared
Vet Certificate submitted within the provided time frame waives scratching fees, with the exception of metropolitan races where a rider has been declared. In this instance a Vet Certificate will result in the scratching fee being reduced to $252.15.

Further, no scratching fee will be applicable if a trainer can show the stewards that the horse’s performance will be affected by the state of the track. For example, if a horse has a poor record on an heavy surface and the stewards are satisfied, the horse can be scratched with no financial penalty.

Unless otherwise authorised by the Board, any horse that arrives on course and is a late scratching shall have the riding/scratching fees met by the club concerned. An application from a Club to waive their responsibility for the fees under this clause would require supporting evidence from the Stewards.

Vet certificates must be lodged with the Stewards within 48 hours of scratching the horse.
