New QTIS Sale, Race & Bonus Series
Queensland Racing & Magic Millions last night announced a 2-year agreement for the conduct of an "All QTIS" Yearling Sale commencing in March 2009. The linking of a yearling sale restricted to QTIS-registered horses with a $4.19 million race & bonus series restricted to QTIS-eligible horses aims to "significantly increase the appeal of the Queensland product". In addition to the $4.19 million series put on by QR, each horse sold through the QTIS 600 Sale will also be eligible for the lucrative $5.975 million Magic Millions Race & Bonus Series. QR chairman Bob Bentley commented: "Tonight's announcement provides increased incentive for owner's to invest within the Queensland racing industry."
