ATA Celebrates 50 Years Race Events in Queensland / Queensland / 14 Aug, 2017

Dear Member,

The 50 Years celebration for the Australian Trainers’ Association (ATA) is heading to Queensland!

The ATA has themed race events scheduled at the following:

  • 23 August @ Gold Coast Turf Club
  • 20 September @ Sunshine Coast Turf Club
  • 4 October @ Brisbane Racing Club at Doomben

Each venue will run an ATA Celebrates 50 Years Handicap. The ATA will also hold an on-course function, which members and their owners are invited to attend, to enjoy free finger-food and beverages.

Finally, and most importantly, each race will carry an ATA member’s only financial incentive. These bonuses apply in addition to standard prizemoney as follows:

    • Are payable ONLY to Trainers who satisfy the following criteria in its entirety:
      a)  Their runner(s) finish in positions 1 / 2 / 3 in the “ATA Celebrates 50 Years Handicap”;
      b)  (i) They are a financial Member of the ATA for the 2017/18 season; and (ii) Have been a financial Member of the ATA for the twelve (12) months prior to race date.
    • The incentives will be paid directly to the Trainers who earn same by either EFT or cheque.
    • Payment to the Trainers will be made 30 days post race date.
    • Incentives are $3,000 for 1st; $2,000 for 2nd; $1,000 for 3rd.

We look forward to catching up with our Queensland members throughout the course of the day at each of the venues.

Wishing all competing members the best of luck.
