South NZ maiden stakes rise

J Scott Latest News


Following a meeting of the Southern Harness Programming Committee yesterday we would like to announce that effective today (Thursday, January 31, 2019) for the duration of the current season, all non-win (MR) races will carry a minimum stake of $10,000 (an increase from $8,000).

This includes today’s Wyndham Harness Racing Club Meeting which has three non-win (MR) races carded.

The $1500 bonus paid by Harness Racing NZ will be added onto the $10,000 stake.

This is something Southern Harness have been striving to achieve and we hope that this will give breeders, owners and trainers renewed confidence in the industry in the south.
