Country tracks are to lose 46 dates while the Caloundra cushion track will gain 17 TAB meetings on Fridays.
The QRL appeasement offered is a $1000 prizemoney increase for all races and free racing for horses which finish fourth and back at a cost of $350,000.
Bentley said the QRL was happy to view CRA submissions, due on February 15, if they "improve the racing schedule, have better ideas or can produce better results, but not submissions that pose what is best for their club and area rather than what is in the best interest of racing in Queensland.
"Cuts are made around sufficient horse populations or those clubs who don't perform or fit the pattern of racing we are trying to achieve," he said.
Asked if a CRA united front against the proposals would be dismissed, Bentley said: "No, we will continue to make decisions in the best interests of racing."
QR will ultimately make the decision but will do it in consultation with the country racing council (QCRC)
"Under the proposal more money goes to the country, it will be more competitive and people will just have to travel," Bentley said.
Asked if there will be any further cuts, he said: "No further plans but it is balanced to the number of horses available in a particular area . . . but professional racing is professional and non-TAB is hobby racing isn't it?
"We pay out an extra six per cent on top of the legislated seven per cent, we have it well balanced at the moment."
Five years ago the QR(L) slashed 200 country race dates.
All eight CRAs believe their fight to retain dates will be tough, not because of their conviction of their own product but because of their relationship with QRL
Angela Unsworth, from North West QRA, has gathered more than 500 signatures on a petition she will present to Racing Minister Andrew Fraser.
"In 2004 they set up CRAs so we could make decisions on dates, prizemoney and programs. It doesn't happen. We get dictated to and when you ring them (QRL) they either don't return your call or just laugh," Unsworth said."
Michael Kelly, of Eastern Downs RA said: "We have become merely social organisers, they control everything. We make proposals and never get an answer.
"We have to make $50,000 a year profit for the year for Dalby to break even but they keep cutting dates. Clubs are never given anything, the QRL just keep taking away.
"QRL's charter is to look after racing in Queensland not just in one area."
Central West RA's Gary Peoples said "Since the 2003 race date cuts, prizemoney in town has skyrocketed while the country has stayed the same. Why should we lose more dates to get some more money?"
"Bentley says he is doing it in the best interest of racing in Queensland. It is the best interest of the southeast corner and his own agenda. He cuts meetings, we lose horses, trainers, jockeys from the area and end up with less. Then he cuts again because we haven't enough horses. It's a joke."
The North West QRA, South East QRA, Eastern Downs RA, Capricornia RA and Central West RA have a submission voicing no date cuts.
Leichardt RA and Far North QRA will hold meetings this week, the latter indicating opposition.
Downs RA Peter Flynn says his association has missed any cuts in the proposal.
"I would support clubs in whatever way possible to retain dates. But some clubs have sat pat and not value added, they are their own worst enemy," he said.
