Race Staging Procedures

Only three races will be in the Paddock at a time.  Please refer to the Lasix/Paddock Schedule for pari-mutuel Paddock times.  Please also review the Paddock Stall Assignments.

For pari-mutuel races, horses, trainers and grooms will be in the Paddock for approximately 30 to 45 minutes prior to the post time of their race. They may not come in earlier and must leave immediately after the race.

For qualifiers, horses, trainers and grooms will be in the Paddock for approximately15 minutes prior to the post time of their race and again, they may not come in earlier and must leave immediately after the race.

All warmups will be on the jog track before coming to the Paddock.

When your race is call up, gather all equipment and stage for departure.  If a horse is not one of the horses selected for testing, and the trainer is stabled on the grounds, the horse should be removed from the Paddock immediately after the race and returned to its barn.

If the horse is shipped in, and is not selected for testing the trainer/groom may bathe the horse in one of the Post 9 stalls(use every other stall)  If the Post 9 stall is not available, the trainer/groom should proceed immediately to one of the outside wash stalls in Barn C (previously the pool barn) to bathe the horse.  Shipped in horses racing in the last three races may return to their stall in Paddock to bathed.

If the horse is selected for testing NYSGC personnel will direct the trainer/groom to one of the designated bath stalls.

Bath Stalls for Horses Being Tested:

Races 1,4,7,10,13:  Use Race 6, stall #1 and #3

Races 2,5,8,11,14:  Use Race 6, stall #5 and #7

Races 3,6,9,12,15:  Use Race 8, stall #1 and #3

If more than two horses are selected for testing use Race 8, stall #5 and #7
