It’s going to be on in True Mildura Style next week with the spotlight to move squarely on to Sunraysia’s much-loved Cups week.

The three-night must-see trots carnival will be celebrated with extended coverage on Trots Vision, radio stations RSN 927 and SENTrack and online at thetrots.com.au, who will share all the big moments and personalities that make it one of the great weeks on country Victoria’s sporting calendar.

TROTS VISION @ thetrots.com.au

The voice of Mildura trots, Luke Humphreys, will be in the box to call his first Mildura pacing and trotting champions, with Jason Bonnington, Nikkita Ross and Rob Auber to join him for wall-to-wall coverage on Trots Vision at thetrots.com.au across all three nights.

That means trots fans will be able to enjoy every winning smile, punting insight and True Mildura Style racing moment from the pacing heats on Tuesday April 6, the Niota Bloodstock Trotters Cup on Friday April 9 and the Tasco Petroleum Pacing Cup on Saturday April 10.

All three nights will also be able to enjoyed with extensive coverage on Sky Racing 1.

The carnival will not only be a feast for the eyes but the ears as well, with RSN 927 and SENTrack delivering terrific coverage throughout the week ...

RSN 927

HRV's Tim O’Connor will join RSN 927 live from the track with the Mildura Mail, dialling in ahead of each race across the three nights with tips and insights before the gates are released. The station will also carry audio from the Trots Vision coverage across its digital channel, including sharing the first words from the winning drivers.

RSN Central’s Gareth Hall will be tuned into the carnival throughout the week, which will be the headliner when he’s joined on Thursday by Dan Mielicki for Green Light On, while the team will also deep dive into True Mildura Style racing as part of its Friday line-up.

And be sure to tune in on the morning of Sunday April 11, when Mielicki and Auber deliver The Mile Rate, serving up the first word in the wake of the pacing cup.

SENTRACK

The race nights will also be enjoyed on SENTrack, with Toby McKinnon to pop on the headsets live from Mildura, where he’ll share every winner and welcome special guests across the station’s national network, including SENTrack Mildura 89.1FM.

SENTrack is also home to Trots Life weekdays from 11am-1pm and host Jason Bonnington will head a special Mildura week celebration on the popular show.

From Tuesday April 6 to Friday April 9, Bonnington will be joined by co-hosts McKinnon, O’Connor and Ross for Trots Life, which will not only play across SENTrack’s network but for the first time carry a live video stream on Harness Racing Victoria’s Facebook, Twitter and website (thetrots.com.au).

The Trots Life coverage will include an all-important Friday Form Panel, when Ross and Humphreys will join Bonnington from 11am-1pm to deliver an extensive breakdown ahead of the trotting and pacing cups.

LAUNCH PARTY

The two big Cups will also get a deep-dive on a special Launch Party show on Thursday April 8 from 5pm, when Bonnington, Ross and Humphreys will host a revolving array of guests from the rooftop of Mildura’s Sandbar Pub. The Launch Party will be streamed live on Harness Racing Victoria’s Facebook and Twitter accounts as well as at the sport’s digital home, thetrots.com.au.
