    It is a dissapointing amount but not unexpected, Alexandra Park telegraphed a final at that level in the original press releases regarding the joint series, and I think no one is unaware now as to the state of the industries finances.

    Hopefully as you say Steve a sponsor will step up but I'm wondering if the 3 club agreement poses any difficulties with that. Regardless of the prizemoney it is our premier brand event and as Steve said everyone needs to get behind it.

    I've little doubt that the circumstances surrounding the prizemoney levels of the WA Inter Dominions were unique and it is unfair to draw direct comparisons between the two ID series.

    Gallops would take a massive hit without sponsorship. If we cannot attract them, we had better figure out why and do something about it.

    Hi everyone,
    Whilst we would all like to see large amounts of prizemoney being offered for our feature events, the reality is that at the moment no harness state in Australia, nor NZ can afford to put up Inter Dominion (ID) prizemoney like that. WA couldn't afford to continue hosting the event (certainly not at that prizemoney level) and without collaboration between Vic/NSW/NZ, there would not have been a bidder at all for HRA to consider and the future of the ID would have been uncertain. As I have been talking about during recent roadshows, we're making improvements in Victoria and turning things around. We will be providing the industry and public with an ID event in 2018 that will re-engage previous Trots lovers and people who haven't been before.
    Cheers, David

    I thing we should be lowering the top prizemoney and increasing the bottom prizemoney . The majority of participants rely on the bottom end money to survive from week to week.
    Don't die wondering !

    Menin Gate huge shortener: 72 to 73 to the all the way down to 23.

    If he's right for the series, he's a better chance with the 3 heats in one week than San Carlo ranked 6.

    That’s a bold call Noel, well sort of anyway, do we take it if Menin Gate doesn’t handle the three heats in a week that he wasn’t right for the series rather then he just didn’t handle three heats in a week?

    I seem to recall San Carlo handling the three heats in a week pretty good in Perth last year, including winning one and making the final. Drew poorly in the final and raced at the rear of the field pulling hard which does your chances no good in that company. Cant see why that experience won’t hold him and connections in good stead this time around.

    As an aside the SBSW stock so far have been at their best as juveniles more so then as aged horses here and in the states, Menin Gate would need to buck that trend.
