Riders Up


Beginning during the 2020 Spring Meet, all riders will be called to their mounts in the Saddling Paddock. Horses may be saddled in the all-weather stalls or under the trees, but must report to the tree marked with their corresponding post position number. The Paddock Judge will call for riders up and horses will file on to the path in post-position order. The outrider will lead horses across the walking ring, making a left turn around the ring and out through the tunnel.
