Each team will consist of between two and four trainers, three jockeys, stable staff, a squad of 30 horses and a racing manager.

Each meeting will have six races over a range of distances from five furlong up to a mile and a half. All races are handicap races and the horses running will be three years old and above. All horses will have a handicap rating between 0-90. Each Team will only be allowed one runner per race.
There will be 36 races in total.
Each race is worth 100 points:
