Racing NSW 2017-18 Showcase Meetings
Racing in Country NSW will benefit from Country Showcase meetings to be launched in the 2017/18 season, reports racingnsw.com.au. Showcase meetings offering a minimum of $30,000 per race in prize money will be staged at various courses throughout NSW. "The Showcase meetings provide excellent opportunities to focus greater attention on some of NSW's emerging country cup meetings," said Racing NSW Chief Executive, Peter V'landys. "Increases to minimum prize money and Country Showcase meetings come on top of the highly successful expansion of The Championships to include Country and Provincial racing and the implementation of Highway races at most metropolitan Saturday meetings." Mr V'landys added: "These prize money increases, along with previous minimum prize money increases, have seen an increase in minimum Country TAB prize money of 110% since 2012."
