NTF statement on latest talks about prize money reductions

Following its Annual General Meeting today, the National Trainers Federation (NTF) is clarifying its position following the statements issued by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and Arena Racing Company (ARC) this morning.

Trainers have informed the NTF that they do not support the terms of the agreement reached last night to restore prize money levels. In their opinion, funding for Class 4, 5 and 6 races should not be sourced from other parts of the race programme.

We have been told that trainers and owners will continue to make their own choices with regard to upcoming ARC fixtures.
