    PRIZEMONEY for Victorian harness racing will exceed current record levels following the government’s commitment in October.

    Racing Minister Martin Pakula announced at the Gordon Rothacker Medal night that a re-elected Labor Government would commit to an additional $6million in funding over two years.

    That promise was reaffirmed during the Inter Dominion.
    Harness Racing Victoria will pass on the funding through increased stakemoney across all
    levels as follows:
    · Restricted class races increased from $4000 to $4500
    · $5000 Career Penalty races increased to $7000
    · Metropolitan class races increased from $16,000 and $18,000 to $20,000
    · Semi-feature metropolitan class races increased from $20,000 to $24,000
    · A $10,000 minimum race stake to be applied on all metro race nights at Melton
    · Country Cup prizemoney increased by $222,500
    · Pryde’s EasiFeed Victoria Cup prizemoney increased from $200,000 to $250,000
    · Minimum payment for fifth to last increased to $140

    “With this additional funding from the State Government, we have aimed to ensure a broad spread
    of harness racing participants at all levels of the industry are rewarded for their hard work through
    these prizemoney increases, which will commence on 1 January 2019,” HRV CEO David Martin said
