The Wairarapa Racing Club’s meeting on Monday, 27 March 2012, which replaced the Foxton meeting, produced aggregate New Zealand TAB sales of $494,571 and Australian totalisator sales of NZ$588,877. Average field sizes were 8.3 after 15 scratchings.

Matamata’s meeting on Tuesday, 27 March 2012 had 82 starters at an average 10.3 starters per race after 27 scratchings.  The meeting produced aggregate New Zealand TAB sales of $702,976 and Australian totalisator sales of NZ$794,098.

Greg Purcell, Chief Executive of NZTR, stated, after turnovers from Tuesday’s meeting were collated:

“Wagering turnovers on Monday and Tuesday fixtures are encouraging. The six meetings have generated $3.3m of domestic wagering sales and $4.3m of totalisator sales in Australia. This has been in line or, in aggregate terms, slightly exceeds long-term budgetary estimates.”

A summary of New Zealand and Australian wagering for the first month of the new Monday and Tuesday fixtures is set out below.
