Handicapping Policies and Field Selection

Participants should ensure they are aware of information contained in the Harness - Handicapping Schedule - Ratings which details handicapping and field selection procedures relevant to Tasmanian harness race meetings.

Handicapping Enquiries

While ORI prefer that handicapping enquiries are in writing detailing the apparent problem, phone enquiries are also available.  Participants should be aware that at times an answering machine may be engaged, but this is checked regularly and you will receive a response as quickly as possible.
