    Lap It Up - Trots Country Championship Carnival from HRV

    https://www.thetrots.com.au/news/art...at-the-valley/

    The new Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) campaign is centred around the LAP IT UP message, with bold new creative artwork to feature on a range of advertising activations across digital, television, social media, print, radio, in-venue and outdoor.

    An indication of the success of this campaign will be how often and where you see LAP IT UP

    I hope posters will let us know when they do. At the very least you should see it everywhere in the lead up to your local country cup

    Ambassador Josh Jenkins is a keen promoter of harness racing but as far as being a well known AFL star, he is not exactly up there. It would be good if he had a couple of high profile co-ambassadors.
    Maybe a transfer to Victoria and some good form will make him a bargain

    I hope the following poster is the one they go with as it actually provides better info
    Edit: that is only the head of the poster that can be found at the following link

    Of course the Country Cups are part of our Feature Races
    I hope HRV are going to update the feature race info on their website soon
    There have been 2 ways to access the list in the past both through the 'For Participants' tab (not sure why it isn't under the Racing tab)
    If you then go through the Harness Directory you only get the 2017 list while clicking on Feature Race List still has 2018
    (I emailed them last week but they have probably been busy with Lap It Up)

    Peaces Of You, Final Peace.
    I heard the old country cup ad on 3aw that they were playing last year yesterday with lap it up tacked on the end. They really aren't trying very hard !
    If they want to put life back into them they just have to bring back standing starts !
    Don't die wondering !

    HRV's own site is not advertising today's Maryborough Cup well enough

    Not one of the main rotating pic stories is about the Maryborough Cup - Today they should all be

    In the week leading up to today I saw only one story make the rotation but with a vague heading 'Sugars ready to crack the code' most would not know it was about the Maryborough Cup unless they opened it

    Edit It is not front and centre on the HRA site either but I clicked on news and discovered that the 'Grand Circuit' podcast also contains some Maryborough content - on the HRV site you only get the heading Grand Circuit - get rid of the two stupid heads pic that we are sick of seeing and put some detail with a pic. Another big failure - think marketing department THINK

    5 only in the Swan Hill Cup tonight (only ever 6 before scratching)
    It would be pathetic for a $35k cup if it wasn't for it attracting 3 super horses - maybe they scared the others off
    Attracting 1 would have been terrible (a walkover) but 3 from the Vic Cup makes it very interesting

    San Carlo is the best horse in the country at the moment he just lacks tactical speed so I worry if he will just keep looking like the best horse in the race rather than winning. Huge run. Only horse in the running to finish within cooee.

    It happened again tonight Brendan

    Owned and bred by industry stalwarts Kevin and Kay Seymour, of Solid Earth Pty Ltd, Colt Thirty One (Mach Three-Charm Personified (Perfect Art) was the toast in each of the three on-course bars.

    The Seymours promised to shout the bar for an hour after the event if their sensational five-year-old took out the Cup. And more than 175 patrons took up the offer at the club bars!

    Maybe this is how to get people back on course

    Hope Swan Hill didn’t have the 10% Melton surcharge on their cup night.

    Great work by the Seymours, always looking to give something back or improve the sport.
    More of that needed in Victoria.
