Prior to Attending Racing

All race day attendees must follow government and HSE guidelines. If not already done, Owners must pre- register on the IHRB screening website and apply for race day access each time they have a runner. A maximum of 4 owners per horse running is permitted.

Should you fail to complete online health screening by the 11pm deadline, you will not be permitted to attend the race meeting. Unfortunately, there can be no exceptions.  

  1. First Time Registration: Owners, not previously registered on the IHRB Health Screening System, must register details to activate an account on the IHRB Health Screening system.
    Please note if you registered with the IHRB to attend a race meeting in 2020 your registration will still be valid.
  2. Daily Race Day Application: needs to be completed the day before each race meeting you are due to attend.
