Rules and Policies


The GRNZ is governed by the Rules of Racing.  The Rules of Racing are determined by the Rules of Racing committee and approved by JCA, RIU and NZRB in accordance with the GRNZ Constitution and the  2003 Racing Act and then authorised by the GRNZ Board. These Rules are then administered by the Association through its Chief Executive, Racing Department and the RIU (Racing Intergrity Unit).  To complement the Rules, GRNZ also issues and implements a number of regulations and policies.  Click on any of the rules or policies below to view.
