Harness Racing SA is pleased to announce that the 2014 Southern Cross Finals will now be run on Sunday August 3 at Betezy Park Globe Derby. The four $60,000 finals were scheduled for the previous night (Saturday August 2), however following negotiations with Sky Racing, the meeting will be moved to the Sunday afternoon with Sky 1 coverage.

The normal “metro” meeting will be run on the Sunday, with a “restricted” prizemoney meeting to be run at Betezy Park Globe Derby on the Saturday night. Over $270,000 in prizemoney will be paid out on Southern Cross final day and Harness Racing SA in conjunction with the SA Harness Racing Club is hoping to encourage a big crowd to the afternoon meeting.

Overall this year the Southern Cross racing series is estimated to distribute around $500,000 in total prizemoney & trophies to eligible 2 & 3yos. Heats will be run from mid-June, through to the August 3 Finals. The full list of dates & programmed races are:
