Increase In Country Showcase Meetings

Thursday, 10th August 2017

Meanwhile, Racing NSW has also expanded the schedule of Country Showcase race meetings from 40 to 45 in 2017/18, upgrading five key country carnival race days to a minimum of $30,000 in prize money per race. Most of these meetings will also feature a race carrying prize money of $40,000 for horses who have not won a race and that are domiciled and trained in the NSW country area. "The Showcase meetings continue to provide a tremendous opportunity for country participants to race for great prize money on a regular basis" Mr V'landys said. Racing NSW has also increased the number of country TAB meetings to be conducted for 2017/18 from 645 to 664. The above initiatives along with the recently announced increase in prize money for the Country Championships Final, will add a total of $2 million to country prize money in 2017/18.
