Harness Racing New South Wales is excited to announce the KS Black and Co Competitive Stakes Gold Series to be run throughout June, July and August.

The set of races are scheduled across all regions and include heats and three $7,500 finals.

HRNSW CEO Sam Nati said: "The competitive stakes concept was recently introduced to create additional opportunities for a certain class of horse using mile rates as a handicapping mechanism.

"We recognise the need to ensure the most efficient use of the horse population, even the less competitive ones in the system.

"These races provide that platform with the key objective to keep owners and hobbyists in the game."

The HRNSW Racing Department started programming the competitive stakes late last year and since then they have continued to grow in popularity and relevance.

The KS Black and Co Gold series is open to R0/R1 horses which have had a minimum of 6 starts and an average mile rate of no faster than 2.02.0 in their last 6 starts at time of nomination. Country divisions will have an average mile rate of no faster than 2.04.0.
