HARNESS Racing New South Wales have developed a drought assistance scheme for trainers state-wide which comes into effect today (November 1).

The scheme will see NSW licenced trainers receive $17.50 per starter each week to assist in the increased price of feed due to the drought.

This will cover all horses drawn in fields, including emergencies, as well as starters in trials drawn into fields by HRNSW Handicappers.

Payments will be made to trainers through the stakes run on a fortnightly basis.

This assistance package will continue through until January 31 and will then be reviewed by the HRNSW Board.

NEED TO KNOW:

HRNSW will pay NSW licenced trainers $17.50 per horse per week based on horses drawn in fields (including emergencies) and starters in trials based only on horses nominated through HRNSW Handicappers.

For sake of clarity a horse will be subsidised only once per week (Sunday to Saturday) not for multiple races and/or trials during that period. The assistance commences from November 1 through to January 31.

There is no application required for this assistance.
