QUEEN'S PLATE ARTICLES.
[It is her Majesty's Command, that these following Rules
be observed by the Owners and Riders of all such Horses, Mares, and Geldings, as shall run for her Majesty's Plates at Newmarket.]
I. Every horse, mare, or gelding, that runneth for the said Plates,
shall carry twelve stone, fourteen pounds to the stone, three heats. *
II. Every person that putteth in a horse, mare, or gelding, for the
said Plate, is to show such horse, mare, or gelding, with the marks, name, and name of the owner, to be entered at the Queen's Stables in Newmarket, the day before they run; and shall then produce a certificate, under the hand of the breeder, that his horse, mare, or gelding, be no more than years old the grass before. III. Every horse, mare, or gelding that runneth, is to start between
the hours of one and four in the afternoon; and to be allowed half
an hour between each heat to rub. IV. Every horse, mare, or gelding, that runneth on the wrong side
of the post or flags, or is distanced in any of the heats, shall have no share of the said Plates, nor be suffered to run any more. V. The horse, mare, or gelding, that winneth any two heats, winneth
the Plate; but if three several horses, mares, or geldings, win each of them a heat, then those three, and only they, to run a fourth heat, and the horse, mare, or gelding, that winneth the fourth heat shall have the Plate.
* By order it is altered to one heat, and different weights are appointed.
In the country the Lord Lieutenant, or the person appointed by him, decides where the horses are to be shown; and the Rules for the Queen's Plates at Newmarket are applicable to the country,
VI. And each horse's, mare's, or gelding's place, as he or they come
in by the ending-post, each heat, as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, &c., shall be determined by such judges as shall be appointed for that purpose by the Master of the Horse. And in case any horse, mare, or gelding shall be, then or after, proved to be above the age of years the grass before, the owner, or owners, of such horse, mare, or gelding, shall be made incapable of ever running for any of the
Queen's Plates hereafter. VII. As many of the riders as shall cross, jostle, or strike, or use
any other foul play, as shall be judged by such person or persons as shall be appointed by the Master of the Horse, such rider shall be made incapable of ever riding any borse, mare, or gelding, for any of her Majesty's plates hereafter; and such owner shall have no benefit of that Plate ; but such owner may be permitted to run any horse, mare, or gelding, for any of her Majesty's free Plates
hereafter. VIII. Every rider shall, immediately after each heat be run, be
obliged to come to the usual place of weighing, with his horse, mare, or gelding, then and there to alight, and not before, and there to weigh to the satisfaction of the judges appointed for that purpose. IX. And in case of neglect or refusal thereof, such owners and
riders shall be immediately declared incapable of running or riding
any more for this or any of her Majesty's Plates hereafter. X. And in case any difference shall arise relating to their ages, or
in their running, or to these her Majesty's orders, &c. the same to be determined by such person or persons as shall be appointed by the aforesaid Master of the Horse. ** These articles will continue in force for succeeding years, unless
directed to the contrary by her Majesty. OF A slight alteration will be observed in the Eighth Rule, as to the place where the jockey is to dismount. This was made with the sanction of his Grace the Duke of Leeds, when Master of the Horse to his Majesty.
