Funding Boost To Country Feature Races & Race Meetings

Racing NSW today announced a further boost for country racing with a significant increase in prizemoney for a number of key country feature races.

Prizemoney for five key country feature races will be increased to $150,000. The events are:

6 October 2017 - PORT MACQUARIE CUP 26 November 2017 - GOULBURN CUP 8 April 2018 - WELLINGTON BOOT 29 April 2018 - TAMWORTH CUP 3 May 2018 - WAGGA TOWN PLATE

“These are well-established country feature races. The increase will provide impetus for the clubs to further develop these race meetings and build their recognition not only within racing, but to their local community,” said Racing NSW Chief Executive, Mr Peter V’landys AM.

Increase in Country Showcase Meetings Racing NSW has also expanded the schedule of Country Showcase race meetings from 40 to 45 in 2017/18, upgrading five key country carnival race days to a minimum of $30,000 in prizemoney per race. Also at most of these meetings there will be a race carrying prizemoney of $40,000 for horses who have not won a race and that are domiciled and trained in the NSW country area.

“The Showcase meetings continue to provide a tremendous opportunity for country participants to race for great prizemoney on a regular basis” Mr V’landys added.

Racing NSW has also increase the number of country TAB meetings to be conducted for 2017/18 from 645 to 664.

The above initiatives along with the recently announced increase in prizemoney for the Country Championships Final, will add a total of $2 million to country prizemoney in 2017/18.
