At the 2019 National Coursing Meeting there will be two Consolation Stakes.
The Kitty Butler Stakes for 32 bitches eliminated in the first round of the Oaks.
The T.A. Morris Stakes for 32 dogs eliminated in the first round of the Derby.
In the event of these stakes not being filled by those eliminated from the first round of the Oaks/Derby the remaining places will be allocated to reserves in the Oaks/Derby which did not get called to run in those stakes.
These reserves must have run a non-competitive course at the end of the first round of the Oaks/Derby.
A new draw will be made to determine which reserves are to receive the remaining places in the Consolation Stakes and which reserves are to be listed as Reserves A,B,C and D for the Consolation Stakes.
The draw for the Consolation Stakes will then take place.
The first round of the Kitty Butler Stakes will take place at the end of coursing on the first day of the National Meeting.
The first round of the TA Morris Stakes will take place at the start of coursing on the second day of the National Meeting.
