FEGENTRI RECOGNISES POINT-TO-POINT WINS FOR RIDERS’ CRITERIA
The General Assembly of FEGENTRI was held in Doha, Qatar on 26th February at the kind invitation of Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club General Manager, Sami Jassim al Boenain. The first ladies races of the Fegentri season were held on the following days with Gemma Gracey-Davison having her first taste of representing Great Britain, finishing unplaced. David Turner also attended the GA to collect his silver spur for his World Flat Title of 2007.
It was agreed at the GA that not only should Arab race wins count towards the required 5 win total to give amateur jockeys eligibility to represent their countries but also that point-to-point wins should be given the same status, thereby enabling many more candidates to put themselves forward. This was welcomed by both Great Britain and Ireland.
