TAB Editors’ Challenge Country Winner To Be Unveiled

The running of this Saturday’s $400,000 Newhaven Park Country Championships Final at Royal Randwick will also provide a winner in the 2017 TAB Editors’ Challenge.

The Challenge was created on the back of the runaway success of the inaugural Country & Provincial Championships Series two years ago.

With the Series attracting such a widespread following right around NSW, relevant newspaper editors were invited to ‘support their local horses’ that were heading to Royal Randwick to do battle in the two Finals of the Country & Provincial sectors.

TAB registered its support for the Editors’ Challenge and sponsored both the Country and Provincial Finals whereby the first and second horses home (first three in the Provincials) in each newspaper’s region, would then be running for the newspaper’s favourite charity in the Final.

Last year TAB generously gave $5000 to the each of the two Final winners, namely Clearly Innocent (Scone Advocate) whose selected charity was Aberdeen Men's Shed, and Danish Twist (Illawarra Mercury) with their $5000 cheque going to Friends of Wollongong Botanic Garden.

TAB also announced it would give a further $500 to each charity should their runners not win either Final.
