    I read in the Harness Racer that

    Matters put to VCAT will be limited to consideration of penalty, and not merit (i.e. VCAT will not re-consider if the RADB made the right decison in terms of guilty/not guilty)

    That is a positive

    Harness Racing Victoria

    Government commits to extra funding for stakes increase if re-elected

    Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) has welcomed tonight’s news that a re-elected Labor Government would see record prizemoney paid out in Victoria over the next two years.

    Speaking at the annual Gordon Rothacker Medal presentation dinner at Crown Palladium, Racing Minister Martin Pakula unveiled an additional $6m commitment from the Andrews State Government to harness racing should it win the next election.

    HRV said it would pass on the additional funding if secured to industry participants through increased stakemoney at all levels from 1 January. The changes would be:

     Restricted class races increased from $4000 to $4500

     $5000 Career Penalty races increased to $7000

     Metropolitan class races increased from $16,000 and $18,000 to $20,000

     Semi-feature metropolitan class races increased from $20,000 to $24,000

     A $10,000 minimum race stake would be applied on all metropolitan nights at Melton

     Country Cup prizemoney increased by $222,500

     Pryde’s EasiFeed Victoria Cup prizemoney increased from $200,000 to $250,000

     Minimum payment for fifth to last increased to $140


    Quotes from HRV Chairman Dale Monteith

    “Harness Racing Victoria welcomes tonight’s significant funding commitment from the Andrews State Government should it win the next election. This additional $6million would enable us to increase prizemoney further over the next two years after paying out more prizemoney than ever before in season 2017-18. This will benefit all industry participants as the stakes increase will be across a range of classes, from restricted races right through to Grand Circuit level.”

    “Feedback from the industry has consistently been that $5000 career penalty races are not popular, so we would lift the minimum stake for a career penalty race to $7000. HRV would also take steps to increase both the quantity of metro races and the associated prizemoney.”
    “An increase in restricted class prizemoney to $4500 would increase to $140 the payment for horses that finish from fifth to last place, and thereby help alleviate some of the pressure on trainers arising from costs such as petrol and feed.”

    A Good Thing by HRNSW
    HRNSW will pay NSW licenced trainers $17.50 per horse per week based on horses drawn in fields (including emergencies) and starters in trials based only on horses nominated through HRNSW Handicappers.

    For sake of clarity a horse will be subsidised only once per week (Sunday to Saturday) not for multiple races and/or trials during that period. The assistance commences from November 1 through to January 31.

    There is no application required for this assistance.

    For more information, watch the latest Trots TV Drought Assistance Update.

    OTHER HRNSW DROUGHT ASSISTANCE:

    Mare Relocation Assistance Form

    Feed Delivery Assistance Form

    Breeding Nurseries & Stud Farms Form

    Every race with $20k+ prizemoney on Saturday is a positive.
    I hope to see the undercard continue to grow in future editions

    Garrard’s Sunshine Sprint will have a prize money increase to $100,000 and rightfully be returned to Group 1 status. (I am guessing that HRA will have to rubber stamp it)
