    I know Ray Chaplin of Equine Excellence has been pushing for a return of the Trotters Inter too.
    Although the link mentions Melbourne will align a feature trotting event with the Inter in 2018, it would be good if they could have a Trotters Inter running along with the pacers by 2021

    My excitement turns to disappointment of the Interdom returning to Victoria. Why mess with the format?! Because of cost? 3 heats & a final, the reason why the Interdom was/is such a mighty race. Im sure it'll still be a success but as a harness lover & a massive fan of the Interdom, the traditional format is what has made legends of our sport. Anyway, thats my whinge.. Onto finding a winner at Shepparton tonight...

    What makes you think there will not be 3 heats & a final Stephen?
    David Martin mentioned that there would be non-Melton heats prior to the final on Dec 15

    "HRV boss David Martin confirms to us on @RSN927 there will be two rounds of Interdom heats in Victoria next year and BOTH will be held away from Melton. Great chance for two other clubs"

    Thanks Stephen. I wonder why they are doing themselves out of money by shortening the event

    This is great news. Remember the huge crowds at Victorian Interdom finals?

    Perfect opportunity for 2 country clubs and the local tourism organizations ( like Events Bendigo) to draw crowds to showcase what really is the keynote harness racing event in the Southern hemisphere.

    Seeing the final is at Melton which has a sprint lane, then, for consistency, the tracks without sprint lanes need not apply ! ( There is one that starts with B and ends in t)
    Central Victorian venues seem obvious, but Cranbourne with the huge population and live-wire organization might be a chance.

    Shepparton and Ballarat, two of the fairest tracks and crowds close to the action.

    I cannot have Ballarat either Noel. You either have a sprint lane for the series or you don't

    I hope you all had an afternoon kip so that you can stay up past midnight tonight
