HASTINGS HOUSE RULES ON WAIVER CLAIMING RACES

WAIVER CLAIMING RACES

In House Rules

 

  1. All Claiming races from now until the end of the current Hastings Racing Season will offer Waiver Claiming. 
  2. To Waiver Claim means to run protected without a claiming price.  
  3. In order to be eligible to Waiver Claim a horse must have in their last start run in a claiming race or for a claiming price that is equal to or lower than the Claiming Race the horse is being entered in. 

Examples 

  1. In an 8,000 claiming race a horse that ran in an 8,000, 6,250, or 4,000 in their last start is eligible to Waiver Claim 
  2. In that same 8,000 claiming event a horse that ran in a 12,500 claiming race in their last start is not eligible to Waiver Claim. 
  3. In a 6,250 claiming race, a horse that ran in an 8,000 claiming race but bought down weight and raced for a 6,000 tag is eligible to Waiver Claim.  
  4. Going forward to the next race, after the Waiver Claim start, a horse is again permitted to Waiver Claim at the same level or above.  

Examples 

  1. A horse runs for 6,250 and Waiver Claims. That horse can run in the next 6,250 claiming race or for a higher level and continue to Waiver Claim.  
  2. Horses that Waiver Claim and win are eligible to Waiver Claim in their next race at the same level or above.  
  3. Waiver Claiming does not affect or change the conditions for a race in any way. 

Examples 

  1. The winner of a Maiden 4,000 claiming race who Waiver Claims is no longer a Maiden and obviously cannot run in a subsequent Maiden event, but that horse can Waiver Claim in any other 4,000 claiming event, for example, 4,000 NW 2 lifetime.  
  2. To Waiver Claim is entirely optional. Otherwise, Waiver Claim eligible horses can still elect to run for the claiming price.  
  3. In order to buy down weight the horse must run for the applicable claiming price and cannot Waiver Claim. 

Example 

  1. In a 4,000 claiming race a horse that is otherwise eligible to Waiver Claim can elect instead to take off 3 lbs and run for the claiming price at 3,500 or take off 6 pounds and run for the claiming price of 3,000. 
  2. Horses that were claimed in their previous start cannot Waiver Claim and must run for the claiming price. After establishing eligibility by racing for a claiming price, that horse may Waiver Claim.  

Important Notice 

All horses who waiver claim in their last start at Hasting are eligible to Waiver Claim in their first start at Hastings in 2019 at the same level or above the level at which they made their last start provided the horse has not started in the 90 days immediately preceding the first 2019 start.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

All horses who Waiver Claim in their last start this year at Hastings in a claiming race of 6,250 or less are eligible for the wintering incentive program, (Net $4,000 value) provided they meet the other conditions of the program and do not start anywhere between their last Hastings start in 2018 and their first Hastings Start in 2019.

SHADES OF THE YEAR 2013

IN RUN FOR JOCKEY TITLE

 Perez & Gonzalez Resume Rivalry

Vancouver, B.C. (Sept. 14/18) — It wasn’t that long ago when Amadeo Perez and Enrique Gonzalez were doing their own version of Mexico’s national dance – the Jarabe Tapito – as a racing season was nearing its conclusion at Hastings Racecourse.

The year was 2013 and it appeared Perez was well on his way to winning a second consecutive Leading Jockey title with 54 trips to the winner’s circle and just seven race dates left on the calendar.

Then suddenly Gonzalez got hot. Really hot.

Over the final four days of the meet he won 12 times to finish with 59 wins, two more than Perez. They were actually tied for the lead with 57 heading into the final day on October 14 when Perez was skunked while Gonzalez won a pair, including the 35th running of the Fantasy for two-year-old fillies. It would be Enrique’s sixth stakes victory of the year.

Perez bounced back to be Hastings’ leading rider again in 2014 and now he and Gonzalez are engaged in another Mexican Hat Dance as this 2018 campaign heads into its stretch run with just 10 racing dates remaining on the schedule.

With three wins on BC Derby Day including the S.W. Randall Plate, Gonzalez is tied with Perez for the lead, deadlocked with 42 on the season.

Unless there is a theatrical finish like Enrique staged in 2013, it would seem a safe assumption that Gonzalez and Perez will be engaged in another run to the wire for this year’s leading jockey honors.

Aaron Gryder (32), Antonio Reyes (28), Denis Araujo (26) and Richard Hamel (24) have all chalked up respectable numbers, but the stage is set for another Gonzalez/Perez standoff.

FAN APPRECIATION DAY SATURDAY

Live thoroughbred racing resumes Saturday and Sunday with 1:50 p.m. starts. Saturday is Fan Appreciation Day with $4 burgers, $2 hot dogs and $1 soft drinks and with each live racing program purchased Hastings fans will receive a voucher for free gifts that include $2 and $5 betting vouchers, 2019 VIP preferred parking passes and grandstand box seats and a host of other prizes.  Also, a ‘second chance’ draw after Saturday’s seventh and closing race gives patrons a chance to win a mini fridge, barbeque and Canucks’ pre-season tickets.  Winners will have to be present to declare their prizes.
