Opportunity of a Lifetime for Sky Callers
Racecallers Anthony Collins and Mitch Manners will showcase their talent on two of the biggest days on the Australian racing calendar at Royal Randwick over the next two weeks. Collins will call the Country Championships Final on day one of The Championships this Saturday, 1 April and Manners will call the Provincial Championships Final on day two on 8 April. The calls will be broadcast around Australia on Sky Racing and Sky Sports Radio and the two men couldn't be more thrilled with the opportunity. "It's a bit surreal that a boy from the bush gets to have a crack at the big time," Collins said. "I'm looking forward to representing not only Sky Racing on the day but also the Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast regions of New South Wales that I normally cover." It will be Manners' second time calling at The Championships. "Having tasted the experience of calling the Country Championships Final two years ago it's an honour to represent Sky Racing again through the Provincial Series this year," Manners said. Viewers can catch all the action of The Championships direct from Royal Randwick on Sky Thoroughbred Central (FOXTEL Channel 528).
