  • Race 8- 5.08pm

For your information - Please refer below for an explanation of why NZRB have made these changes.

The scheduling changes were made to minimise the significant impact on revenue that can occur with the loss of product on a Saturday.

Saturday schedules are built around a four thoroughbred cycle on Trackside 1 for the home viewer, with the two best meetings from Australia and New Zealand complimenting each other, and all other available races on Trackside 2 to offer customers the most betting opportunities.

By moving Trentham back into the Kumara time slot we were able to move Melbourne (Flemington) onto Trackside 1 alongside the feature Trentham Meeting, the Magic Millions from the Gold Coast, and the meeting out of Sydney from Randwick.

This move also enabled a further 6 races from Ipswich to be Broadcast on Trackside 2 which were Non Broadcast races.
