Amendment of the Horse Racing (Northern Ireland) Order 1990

Section 1 – Horse racecourse operators

This section amends Article 2 of the 1990 Order, by omitting definitions of “the Company” and “the Corporation”. The section inserts a definition “horse racecourse operator”, which includes Downpatrick Race Club and Down Royal Park Racecourse Limited. These are the current operators of the racecourses at Down Royal and Downpatrick. Section 1 also amends Article 2 to provide that the definition of “horse racecourse operator” can be amended by regulations, but only with the approval by resolution of the Assembly.
