Sky Racing to preview Battle of the Bush Final

Racing Queensland has partnered with Sky Racing to deliver a one-hour preview show highlighting Saturday’s highly anticipated TAB Battle of the Bush Final at the historic Eagle Farm Racecourse. 

The preview show will air tonight (Thursday) from 9.30pm on Sky Thoroughbred Central (Ch 528), with a special encore screening on Friday evening from 6pm.

The TAB Battle of the Bush Series comprised 16 qualifiers, at 16 country locations across Queensland, and will culminate in a $125,000 final on Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara Day.

The show will provide in-depth analysis on all 16 runners set to contest what has been billed as ‘The Melbourne Cup for the Bush’.

Hosted by Bernadette Cooper and North Queensland guru Michael Charge, the program will also feature several special guests including:

  • Defending Battle of the Bush Champion rider, Justin Stanley
  • Queensland’s leading country rider, Dan Ballard
  • Owners of Split The Atom, Peter and Will McLeish

The show was made possible thanks to Racing Queensland’s commitment, in conjunction with On The Bit Qld Country Racing, to capture race replay vision of all 16 qualifiers held at non-TAB meetings across Queensland over the past two months.

The vision is available at a special 2019 TAB Battle of the Bush Hub which can be found here: https://www.racingqueensland.com.au/2019-TAB-Battle-Of-The-Bush
