Staying Series:

The Sapphire Coast Turf Club (SCTC) and Moruya Jockey Club (MJC) wish to advise owners and trainers that they have initiated a Staying Series to be held on both tracks over the 2019 summer season. The Series will be part of the South Coast Summer of Racing, comprising of six meetings with over $1.2 Million in prizemoney. The Staying Series will commence with a 1600m BM66 on Jan 2nd at SCTC (Bega Cup Prelude) followed by a 2200m BM66 on Jan 21st on Narooma Cup day (MJC) and finish with a 2200m BM 66 at SCTC on Feb 3rd, the final day of the Bega Cup Carnival.

Prizemoney for the three race series includes a $5000 bonus to the series winner, a $3000 bonus to a trainer that trains two of the three winners, plus trophies for winning owner and trainer. Points for each race will be allocated:

  1600m 2000m 2200m
1st 9 12 18
2nd 6 9 14
3rd 4 7 12
4th 2 5 10
Starter 1 3 5

The management and committee of both clubs are excited about the series, to be named the South Coast Staying Series, and hope that this will eventuate into an annual event as part of the South Coast Summer of Racing where we can showcase the best local staying horses alongside our beautiful stretch of pristine coastline. Owners, trainers and their families are encouraged to visit the South Coast’s many attractions combined with some exciting racing at both venues.
