The cheering could be heard loud and clear from the Central Coast of NSW following the victory of Serene Miss in today’s $500,000 Polytrack Provincial Championships Final (1400m) at Royal Randwick.
Shoebox Revolution is the beneficiary of $5000 courtesy of TAB after Central Coast Express Advocate nominated it as its charity of choice in TAB’s 2018 Provincial Editors’ Challenge.
The Provincial Championships has generated huge interest right around the state and as such, newspaper editors were invited to ‘support their local horse’ leading up to today’s Final on The Championships Day 2 – Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day.
TAB joined with The Championships to get behind each region’s horse and editors were asked to nominate a charity with $5000 heading to the winner’s respective charity.
Central Coast Express Advocate was the lucky newspaper to draw Serene Miss with the paper’s Editor, Tony Curran, saying: “We're thrilled to see Serene Miss win the Provincial Championships Final on behalf of the Central Coast Express Advocate.
“And we're even more delighted for our nominated charity Shoebox Revolution.
“The charity was set up by two Central Coast sisters with the simple aim of filling a shoebox with of essential items for the homeless.
“We must thank TAB and Racing NSW as the $5000 prize will go a long way towards providing these care packages for those in need.”
