Prizemoney has increased to $5,000 for each race and up to $11,000 for the feature cup race. With $31,000 in prizemoney it will be a great day for racing in Bourke. The club also offers attractive float and travel rebates to trainers and jockeys. Trainers are eligible for a $200 per horse rebate and jockeys are eligible for up to $700 in travel and rider rebates.
Other attractions on the day will include a variety of food stalls, a jumping castle for the kids and Fashions on the Field. 2019’s competition and every year since proved to be competitive and hasattracted a very classy group of participants. Categories range from children’s, to teens to adults including Best Dressed Contemporary and Best Dressed Classic Lady.
