Trainers note:

Whenever a horse comes under the control of a trainer with the intention of preparing the horse to participate in racing, a current Stable Return must immediately be completed and lodged with HRSA Ltd.

Trainers who fail to comply with this direction are guilty of an offence.

Horses qualifying to race at trials will not be passed if a current Stable Return is not lodged before the horse is nominated for a trial.
