2019 TAB Battle Of The Bush

The Battle of the Bush Series will comprise 16 qualifiers commencing on 20 April 2019 at Gladstone TC, culminating in a final at Tattersall’s Tiara Raceday at Eagle Farm on Saturday 22 June 2019.

The stakes will be even higher when country Queensland takes on the second annual TAB Battle of the Bush Series, which gets under way on Saturday April 20 at Gladstone.

This year, there are even more incentives for country participants to get involved and for punters nationwide to get behind the series. 

Like the inaugural running, 16 qualifiers will be held across the eight Racing Queensland regions, culminating in a final on Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara Day.

This time, finalists will race for $125,000 (plus a $30,000 QTIS winners’ bonus) at the historic Eagle Farm Racecourse.

RQ CEO Brendan Parnell said Racing Queensland was committed to providing more opportunities for country racing participants to experience the thrill of racing for high stakes alongside some of Australian racing’s biggest names.

“The inaugural TAB Battle of the Bush Series was a game changer, not just for participants and owners, but for racing fans across Queensland who followed their favourite country trainer or horse throughout the series to the final,” Mr Parnell said.
