Ballarat Seeks Stand-Alone Saturday Cup Date
Following last month's success in staging the Ballarat Cup for the first time on a Sunday, the Ballarat Turf Club "is pushing for a stand-alone Saturday cup date" reported The Herald-Sun. Ballarat Turf Club chief executive Shane Brennan confirmed he is "looking to build on the momentum gained this year" & has approached Racing Victoria & Country Racing Victoria with the plan, noting: "At the end of the Sydney carnival they hold a successful stand-alone cup meeting at Hawkesbury & in Queensland they have stand-alone dates on the Sunshine Coast & at Ipswich."
