Taranaki Racing’s Xtreme Race Day, to be held on Saturday 28th September, just got even more extreme.
The day already consists of a number of extreme's; New Zealand’s only ‘Greys Race’, the longest flat race which is also now a qualifying race to the Jericho (with a complimentary trip to Australia for the Winner courtesy of NZ Bloodstock Airfreight). As well all R65 races again are picked in reverse order allowing the lowest rated horses a chance to be guaranteed a start.
Now, to add to these innovations, Taranaki Racing today announced special balloting conditions for its Rating 72 1800. They are (a) In Rating order, all horses sired by Zed, (b) Usual Rating order.
Club CEO, Carey Hobbs, stated that “This is a unique way to support sponsor Grangewilliam stud, and as a one-off on our extreme day we are happy to support a sponsor who supports us”.
