5-Months Extension For QTIS-Registered 4YOs
Queensland Racing yesterday announced "an extension to QTIS races for 4YOs in the South-East corner of the State for the period August 1-December 31". Chairman Bob Bentley explained: "QR has undertaken a review of the racing pattern of horses subsequent to the outbreak of Equine Influenza & it has become apparent that stake-holders with QTIS-registered horses have been significantly impacted upon, due to the shutdown of racing in the South-East corner of the State. The Board has taken the decision to program an additional $1 million in QTIS bonuses for 4YOs for the 5-month period. The race conditions of these races won't be restricted to 4YOs, but QR will add a $30,000 4YO QTIS bonus to 1 race on every metropolitan meeting & also 40 QTIS bonuses of $7,000 at provincial meetings throughout the South-East of the State."
