The rules were changed for the timetable of the 2022 French Flat jockeys' championship, the Cravache d'Or, with the Association des Jockeys Executive Committee validating the advisory vote in favour of a date change on Friday. Originally, the valid dates for the Flat championship were from Jan. 1-Dec. 31st, but beginning in 2022, the Cravache d'Or will begin on Mar. 1st and end on Oct. 30th. The other French jockeys' championships-the Cravache d'Or obstacle for National Hunt jockeys and the Etrier d'Or for apprentices will remain Jan. 1-Dec. 31. The new system is considered a transitional measure for the 2022 and 2023 seasons, while the jockeys will be consulted again in the future after the implementation of the date change.
