Taranaki Racing today confirmed it will again run two $101,000 Sweepstake races in the 2019/2020 season for Maidens.
The first, the ITM Winter Challenge, be run on Saturday 24 August, will be for maidens at 9am on 1st June 2019. The second, the Platinum Homes Taranaki Summer Challenge, will be run on Saturday 1st February 2020 for maidens as of 1st December 2019.
Each race will be part funded by slot holders, who will buy the right to run a horse in the race. Club CEO, Carey Hobbs, stated “these races were incredibly successful last year, from a turnover and racing perspective. We are currently giving the previous slot holders the first option for this season, but we expect a few slots will be available for both races”.
Any person interested in purchasing a slot should email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
