New format set to take place for 2 year olds in the Breeders Crown in 2018
It will not be a requirement to have a betting race after qualifying 2YOs, as there will be heats taking place. These will not be elimination heats, but will take the form of grading heats in order to ascertain which level they are able to compete . The faster ones will go through to a group 1 and the 2YOs that are not so far forward will go in to group 2.
Heats will be held at Tir Prince, Portmarnock and Corbie Wood. Updates on this new format will be published in the New Year.
