HORSE RACING IRELAND has announced two new awards to be presented at this year's Irish Horse Racing Awards on November 29.

The new prizes are 'Racehorse of the Year' and an industry award. The former will honour an extraordinary performance by a racehorse and will be presented to the successful owner. The latter will recognise an individual's outstanding contribution to the industry.

The winners will be recorded in the Irish Racing Yearbook 2005, which will be launched at the Irish Horse Racing Awards.

There will now be six categories: Racehorse of the Year, Outstanding Achievement, Flat, National Hunt, Point-to-Point, Contributions to the Industry.

Brian Kavanagh, chief executive of HRI, said: 'HRI is pleased to be associated with these awards and with the Irish Racing Yearbook.'

RICHARD MULLEN hopes to return to the saddle at Lingfield today, having missed the last two days after a fall at Bath on Sunday.

His agent Gareth Owen said yesterday: 'He injured his ankle and his back and he had his ankle in ice yesterday hoping to ride today. When he woke up he felt even worse so he decided he needed another day - he wouldn't have been able to do his mounts justice. He's hoping to be back tomorrow.'

DARRYLL HOLLAND and Pat Smullen have accepted invitations to represent Britain and Ireland respectively in the World Super Jockeys Series at Hanshin racecourse, near Osaka, on December 4-5.

THE Amateur Jockeys' Association is to hold the Northern Dinner Dance on November 6 at Scotch Corner Hotel, North Yorkshire. Tickets are on sale at pounds 40 per head with rooms available at a reduced rate. For further details, contact Carol Williams on 07734 303862, Kelly Harrison on 07830 394311 or Serena Brotherton on 07740 257110.
