as of January 2017
Entries and participations in the JRA races are subject to the JRA Rules of Racing. Candidate horses for the race will be assessed on their relative merits by the JRA Selection Committee. The JRA has the sole authority and discretion in determining the selection, and the decision of the JRA shall be final. The confirmation of intention to participate and the ability of the horse to meet the schedule of timing necessary for pre-race quarantine will be considered for the selection. The JRA reserves the right to make additional selection from candidate horses which can complete the necessary formalities and logistics in time to participate in the race.
