Far Too Rusty & connections - Recieve the first ever Met Multiplier cheque
Addington’s Met Multiplier has proven extremely popular since its inception some 20 months ago. Twenty-five pacers or trotters have now earned the Met Multiplier bonus with $7,500 paid out to each qualifying horse’s owners and trainers.

The “Met Multiplier Honour Roll” shows harness horses right across the classes in both pacing and trotting gaits from a diversity of stables. Current total pay-out is at $187,500 for the new initiative.

The scheme is designed to encourage trainers to support the New Zealand Metropolitan Trotting Club (NZMTC) with a lucrative incentive for the connections.

To earn a Met Multiplier a horse has to start at a (NZMTC) meeting a minimum of 15 times over a 12 month rolling period and be placed 1st or dead heat for 1st in one of those qualifying starts.

So that means that your horse has 12 months to have the 15 starts and gain one win from when it first starts at a NZMTC meeting. E.g. A horse that has its first start at Addington on
 14 March 2014 must have a minimum of 15 starts at NZMTC meetings and be placed first in one of those starts by 13 March 2015. Horses that have had more than 15 starts and are yet to win can still qualify as long as they win a race within their 12 month period and at the same time satisfy the 15-start criteria within that time period.

Addington’s Racing Manager Brian Rabbitt said “that the initiative has proved to be a winning formula for the club, owners and trainers. We have seen an increase in horse numbers and our starter numbers are tracking above the national average which is a positive result. It is intended to keep the scheme going especially as many owners and trainers are taking advantage of it and there are several horses very close to earning a cheque for their connections.”

Full details and conditions of The Met Multiplier Reward can be found under the Racing - Promotions and Incentives section at www.addington.co.nz or contact Brian Rabbitt or Richard Bromley at the Addington Racing Department on (03) 338 9094.
