'Battlers' Come From Far And Wide To Inverell (Saturday)

Inverell’s Don Bartlett Memorial Bush Battlers Cup, to be run as a feature to the club’s Sky2 TAB meeting on Saturday, has drawn a field from far and wide to race for the second running of the special conditions handicap.

The club and Racing NSW have been attempting to promote the small one day meetings in the north-west with the race only open to horses that have raced at the nominated one day cup meetings this year.

Runners will come to Inverell from St George, Warwick and Goondiwindi in Queensland, Taree on the mid north coast, Collarenebri in the west as well as “locals” from Inverell, Moree, Tamworth and Quirindi trying to snare a share of the $20,000 prizemoney which is well above what would normally be available for the class of horse competing at the one day meetings.

A field of 12 has accepted with a range of benchmarks from 34 to 62 and the club is pleased with the response with 74 acceptors and 16 jockeys attending at this stage.

The track currently rated as soft following a very welcome 60 mls of rain falling on Wednesday.

Club President Peter Tanner walked the track on Thursday morning and said the racing surface had handled the rain well and will be in perfect condition come Saturday.

Inverell race again for the traditional non TAB social day on Boxing Day and the strong 8 race TAB program on New Year’s day featuring the open handicap Shorts over 1010m and the $35,000 Cup over 1400m.
