The long term plan of Taranaki Thoroughbred Racing Inc. to host an end of year Winter Championship at Pukekura Raceway is getting closer to fruition.

With the support of NZTR Taranaki Thoroughbred Racing today announced stakes of $240,000 for ITM Interprovincial Race Day on Saturday 20th August.

Race Stakes
ITM Interprovincial  $50,000
Open $30,000
Two SC Maidens $27,500
Two R75s $25,000
Two R65s $22,500

Taranaki Thoroughbred Racing Inc. appreciate how tough times are and are committing as much as possible to increasing stakes as can be further evidenced by the PowerWorx Opunake Cup and NZ Bloodstock 3yo being run well above minimums at $65,000 and $40,000 this Saturday.

In all Taranaki Thoroughbred Racing have committed $34,000 above minimum stakes toward these two days. Stakes announcement on the PowerWorx Greys Race in September will also be confirmed soon.

PowerWorx who have always supported the Greys Race have also come on-board as sponsor of arguably the Central Districts feature winter race the Opunake Cup.

We are hoping for great racing and strong turnover stated club CEO, Carey Hobbs.
