$1,000 Minimum Payment for Canterbury and Royal Randwick

Racing NSW and Aquis Farm today announced a minimum payment of $1,000 for all starters not finishing in the first 10 in both the Canterbury Night race meeting this Friday 26 October and Royal Randwick this Saturday 27 October 2018.

This initiative will assist Queensland trainers this weekend on the back of strike action by participants in that State. It also applies to NSW trained horses.

It should be noted horses currently finish 7th to 10th receive $3,500 in unplaced prizemoney for Saturday meetings and $1,500 for Friday nights.

Nominations for both meetings have also been extended by one hour and close at 12 noon (Sydney time) on Monday 22 October 2018.

“These payments will provide extra encouragement for all trainers to race at either Canterbury or Royal Randwick this weekend,” said Racing NSW Chief Executive Mr Peter V’landys AM.

Aquis Farm Chief Executive Mr Shane McGrath outlined his company’s backing of the initiative.

“We’re pleased to be able to partner with Racing NSW and provide this support which we hope will be taken up by Queensland participants racing for the excellent prizemoney in Sydney.”

These payments are in addition to travel rebates for Friday night/Saturday metropolitan racing announced by the Australian Turf Club.
