Catering for 4yo and older C1-C3 mares, the series will see four $6,000 heats conducted from 9-11 July, culminating in a $20,000 final at Tabcorp Park Menangle on 19 July. A winner of a $2,500 Breeders Challenge Owners Bonus certificate will also be drawn from owners of mares that compete in the series.
President of HBNSW, Joanne Andersen explained that "the series is perfectly placed for mares as it is in between the Pepper Tree Farm Breeders Challenge Major Series and the Regional Finals.
"It also provides another opportunity for mares and their connections to compete against their own sex for substantial money," she said.
Harness Breeders NSW would like to thank HRNSW and the conducting clubs for their support, in particular the NSW Harness Racing Club which has maintained the value of this year's final. Dates for the series are listed below.
