Hi Folks,
Trying to understand the Australian Racing Class.
The 6th race at Rockhampton  Oct - 10th-2018- race appears to be a RESTRICTED race.

Q1.
What are the restrictions?

Q2
All other things being equal (Metro, Provincial or Country) what races are this type of Restricted race better than?
Eg which CLASS race type or which BENCHMARK race types
Q3.
All other things being equal (Metro, Provincial or Country) what races are this type of Restricted race worse than?
Obviously worse than Open, Listed and Graded races - but what else?


Thank you

Race 6 - 4:45PM Spring Carnival Stockland Rton 0 - 60 Handicap (1600 METRES)
This means the race is restricted horses that rate between zero and 60.  If the horse rates 61 it is ineligible.
This is different from a Benchmark 60 in which a horse that rated 61 would be permitted to enter but would be weighted above the benchmark accordingly. (i.e BM+1)

Speedo
I'd suggest you use the alphabetic descriptive Jan Feb Mar etc .

In the other thread I spent ages looking for the Coonamble (10-6 ) meeting looking as I did at June.

That Rocky meeting today is being held here today 11th Oct not 10-10 as it is in the States.

Just a tip. :beer:

Tontonan or anyone else,
(All things - jurisdictions - being equal) Is a CLASS 2 race better than this type of 60 Restricted race?
Thank you

Bit of bedtime reading . .

The template should cover all of your queries regarding Qld

Other states are identical . . or very similar
