Prizemoney Increase Announced For Muswellbrook Cup

Muswellbrook Race Club has announced an increase in prizemoney for its Muswellbrook Cup to $100,000 to be run on 8th December.

Muswellbrook Race Club's GM, Duane Dowell, welcomed the decision from the committee to endorse an increase to the feature race to further enhance the revitalised cup day.

“This has been a goal for some time so it’s great to be able to deliver on what we had planned”, Mr Dowell said. “The success of our Gold Sponsors Club and fantastic support from Muswellbrook Shire Council has helped us to reach this level.”

The $100,000 Muswellbrook Cup (1500m) to be run on Friday 8th December will be supported by Racing NSW as a Country Showcase race meeting with minimum prizemoney at $30,000 per race. Supporting races will include the $50,000 Skellatar Sprint over 1000m, the $40,000 Wayne Harris Handicap (1280m), the $30,000 2yo Starmaker (1000m) as well as a $40,000 Country Maiden race.

MRC's Chairman, John Sunderland, said the success of last year’s Cup Day was a great boost moving towards the 2017 Cup: “The move away from Melbourne Cup Day was a great success in 2016 with a 40% increase in attendance and 20% increase in NSW TAB Wagering.

“I am confident the significance of our feature raceday and associated events to complement a Muswellbrook Cup Festival will continue to grow to the future," Mr Sunderland added.
