Following consultation between Racing Queensland, Townsville TC and the QRIC, the Townsville TC race meeting on Saturday 15 December has been abandoned.
The decision has been made following the inclement weather recently encountered in central and northern Queensland having had a significant effect on road network in those regions, thus creating transportation issues for humans and equines intending to participate at the race meeting. The potential for further inclement weather in Townsville and the surrounding areas was also a contributing factor to the decision made.
As a consequence of the abandonment, there has been amendments made to the program for the Townsville TC race meeting on Thursday 27 December. These comprise:
MM Country Cup Qualifier Open Handicap 1200m
Of $32,500. 1st $18,300, 2nd $6, 150, 3rd $3,150, 4th $1,500, 5th $900, 6th to 10th $500 each
Plus $20,000 bonus if winner is Magic Millions registered
The winner of the race will be exempt from the ballot, if eligible & nominated,
For the 2019 MM Country Cup 1200m at the Gold Coast TC race meeting on
Saturday 12 January 2019
The remainder of the program for this race meeting remains as has been previously advertised.
