Get ready for a big race day
NOMINATIONS for Sunday's full TAB meeting at Murwillumbah close at 11am today.
The Chinderah Business Houses Race Day will feature seven events - among them two important races including an open handicap conducted over 1510 metres worth $12,000 in prizemoney with an added $5,000 in BOBS breeding bonuses available, and an open two-year-old handicap conducted over 1200 metres worth $9000 in prizemoney and an added $5000 in BOBS breeding bonuses available.
The 1510-metre open event will be run as a heat of the PJ Bell Country Championship, which sees races conducted at different racecourses throughout country NSW and where horses can pick up points towards a special country thoroughbreds premiership.
Entry is restricted to horses trained in country NSW or the ACT.
The Brisbane Bloodstock Handicap for two-year-olds carries a $10,000 winner's bonus on top of prizemoney and BOBS payments in the event the race is taken out by a thoroughbred purchased at the Brisbane Bloodstock yearling sale.
It is also a nice lead-up event for the increasingly popular Glider Classic for two year olds, run during Murwillumbah Cup Carnival.
