Starting today, and scheduled to air every Monday hereafter as the final segment on Racing.com’s late afternoon show, “AFTER THE LAST”, the Australian Trainers’ Association (ATA) will sponsor a new segment called “TRAINER OF THE WEEK”
This will highlight, promote and reward the performance by a trainer from the preceding seven days. This performance will not necessarily focus on race victory alone. Additional factors can and will help identify a notable performance. For example, a human-interest angle, such as industry personality or family success; to overcoming the odds, including a return to work from serious illness or injury; even a David versus Goliath outcome!
Importantly, this weekly recognition covers trainers in both South Australia & Victoria, determined from review of racing vision brought to you by Racing.com over the past week.
Finally, to reward the training performance, the Trainer of the Week will receive an ATA / United Petroleum Fuel Card, with a value of $200. This can be redeemed on fuel purchases* at all participating UP service station outlets.
* Discount available on diesel and petrol only. Excludes LPG.
Airing on Free-to-Air Channel 68/78, Foxtel 529, and available on all tablet and digital platforms, we urge members to tune in as we recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements by their peers.
