TRSA introduces Spring Series

TRSA has announced another fantastic incentive for owners and trainers to further the excitement of Spring Racing in South Australia.

Six individual race Series have been created, each named after iconic South Australian horses such as the outstanding mare Viddora, who has accumulated more than $2 million in prizemoney to date, and warhorse Riziz, whose strike rate was to be envied, to be held in September, October and November 2018.

Heats will be run at Metropolitan, Provincial and Country race meetings throughout South Australia, with a Final for each Series to be held at Morphettville during the Spring Carnival.

These Series will be held over a range of distances to provide opportunities for as many horses as possible, with the following Series Finals:

  • Saturday 20 October $100,000 Rebel Raider Series Final (3yo), 1200 metres

  • Saturday 27 October $100,000 Viddora Series Final (Mares BM 80), 1300 metres

  • Saturday 3 November $100,000 Riziz Sprint Series Final (BM 75), 1100 metres

  • Tuesday 6 November $100,000 Skybeau Stayers Series Final (BM 75), 2000 metres

  • Saturday 10 November $100,000 Happy Trails Series Final (BM 7), 1400 metres
