Stake Increases for New Oamaru Meeting – 25 August
Due to the Oamaru JC having their late July meeting abandoned and their wish to have a replacement date, it has been approved by the New Zealand Racing Board that they will now hold the licence for Friday August 25. Oamaru’s 25 October date will now be taken by the Otago RC, effectively a swap of dates and venues by the two clubs.
The Oamaru meeting on 25 August will have significantly increased stakes to the previously published programme for 25 August. In addition an Open 1600m race has been added to the programme which will be run as the Oamaru Cup. The confirmed programme is:
Open 1600m $35,000 (additional race, Oamaru Cup)
R90 1200m $30,000
R75 1600m $25,000
R75 1200m $25,000
R65 1600m $22,500
R65 1200m $22,500
Mdn 1600m $10,000
Mdn 1400m $10,000
Mdn 3YO 1200m $10,000
This programme has been approved by the South Island Programming Committee.
