The well supported monthly Ultimate Tools Trotters Cup series is set to continue into the new racing season with local businessman and high profile owner Greg Mitchell not only extending but increasing his sponsorship program of the Albion Park run events.

In thanking Mr Mitchell for his continued support, Albion Park Harness Racing Club Chairman David Fowler said, 'This is great news, the series proved very popular last season and with the added bonuses for next season I am sure it’s popularity will continue to grow'.

Over the next twelve months there will be five Discretionary Handicaps, two Band Handicaps and five Mobile races scheduled for the trotters with two of the Discretionary and two of the mobile races to carry increased prize money of $20,000 each.

As well as the monthly rug and trophy on offer, the much sought after trainers and drivers cash bonus will also continue with winning drivers and trainers each receiving $250 cash and the winning trainer an additional $500 Ultimate Tools gift voucher.

The first of the four $20,000 races will be a 1660 metre mobile and has been scheduled for 31 August with the remaining planned for 26 October (2138 metre Discretionary Hcp), 29 February 2020 (2138 metre Mobile) and 27 June 2020 (2647 metre Discretionary Hcp).

The remaining monthly Ultimate Tools Trotters Cups will be run on the last Saturday of each month and carry prize money of $13,200.
