Racing NSW today announced the creation of a new $100,000 Midway Race to be added to metropolitan Saturday race meetings.
The creation of the $100,000 Midway Races exclusively for horses from small to mid-sized NSW metropolitan and provincial stables to be run at metropolitan Saturday race meetings from 1 July 2021. A point scoring system will be applied to such trainers based on the number and level of race of winners trained by them in the previous year to see if they meet the mid-size category.
Minister for Racing, Mr Kevin Anderson, welcomed the prizemoney increases and creation of the Midway Races: “It is great to see continued increases in prizemoney to the grassroots of racing and new ways to broaden and strengthen racing in NSW,” Mr Anderson said.
“Racing continues to go from strength to strength in NSW across the board, whether it be feature Carnivals, TAB racing or non-TAB and picnic racing,” Mr Anderson further remarked.
The Chairman of Racing NSW, Mr Russell Balding AO, said: “The objective of the Midway Races is to build the competitiveness of small to mid-sized stables and further develop the field sizes and quality for metropolitan racing."
