A flagrant cutdown version of the NSW initiative, but who cares. A wonderful outcome for Victorian country and provincial racing.   emthup

VRC announces $600,000 country series

More country gallopers will be on show during the Melbourne Cup carnival after the Victoria Racing Club announced a $600,000 series would culminate with a rich final on Oaks Day.

The VRC has devised the Melbourne Cup Carnival Country Series comprising of eight heats worth $50,000 at provincial tracks across the state before the series concludes with a $200,000 final run at Benchmark 80 level on the third day of the Flemington carnival.

Only Victorian trainers that do not have a metropolitan training base can nominate horses for the series in which horses that finish first and second in each heat will qualify for the final.

Racing Victoria's executive general manager of racing Greg Carpenter commended the VRC for the initiative, which fits RV's investment in country racing via recent prizemoney upgrades.

"This new race series builds upon our previously announced investment in country racing and will be another highlight of this year's Spring Racing Carnival," Carpenter said in a statement.

"The Melbourne Cup Carnival Country Series reinvigorates country racing's link with VRC Oaks Day and will provide Victorian country trainers and their connections with the unique chance to compete in a $200,000 final on one of Victoria's most famous racedays."

Below are the dates and distances of the heats of the 2017 Melbourne Cup Carnival Country Series.
