Melbourne Cup Day meeting in Hobart on Sky2

19 / 10 / 2010 Article by: Editor

THE thoroughbred meeting scheduled to be run at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart on Melbourne Cup day will be covered nationally on all totes with all races broadcast on Sky 2.

Traditionally the six-race card is usually covered by local pools only but Tasracing has been able to secure national coverage of the meeting which should encourage greater local investment in the meeting.

Tasracing also is endeavouring to expand the meeting to eight races so Tasmanian trainers should be aware that an additional two maiden races may eventuate provided the meeting attracts ample nominations.

Nominations for the meeting close at noon, October 27.
