A new online entry system for point-to-point races has been launched.

It has been set up to make it easier for owners to enter horses and keep track of their schedules.

When registering their first hunter certificate of the season, they will receive a username and password, giving them access to the site.

Once entries have been logged, payment is made either by Weatherbys account, credit or debit card.

“This latest innovation is set to revolutionise entries for the amateur scene, keeping the sport in line with its counterpart under Rules,” said a spokesman for the Point-to-Point Racing Company.
