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.

I'm sure I speak on behalf of all the forum in offering our condolences to Bendigo track rider Donna Philpot who lost her life at work yesterday morning.

Very sad. Leaves her husband Gus (trainer) and daughters Jessie and Montana.

Came down from Queensland only in 2014.

Pretty brave person would tip against #3 Another Coldie on the limit weight - the $1.60 up on fixed odds at the moment looks tempting to toss into some all ups. Stablemate Refulgent has drawn well and Weir quinella is on the cards.

Amazing that this race only gets Listed status - 2nd year now it has had $300k in prizemoney. Sort of highlights "the elephant in the room" for the pattern committee. In some states a $300,000 race would be Group 2 or possibly Group 1.

If the prizemoney in Victoria and NSW keeps increasing at the current rate there will have to be a time in the future where some tough decisions are made.

Last year this race was won by David Hayes with Pilote Dessai beating Scherzoso and Manageress (not sure what happened with the winner. Looked to be a highly promising stayer - not sighted since the autumn).

I don't think this year's version is as strong.

#5 Grey Lion has a rating well ahead of this field going on his 2nd in the QE and gets in with one above the limit. The $6.00 seems a bit generous. Am I missing something  :what:

#2 De Little Engine is a hard one to assess. Awful 2nd up record (8:0-1-0) but the fact he is getting out to 2200m 2nd up makes you think that maybe he might be a bit more forward in condition than he normally is 2nd up?

The early favourite is #7 Mr Garcia who had a 3/4 length win in a 4&5yo BM90 on Oaks Day with 4 above the limit. Drops to 54 kg here but hardly QE class.

Will stick with #7 Another Coldie today in the Port Fairy Cup even though he drops back from a mile. Looks promising and if he holds his form should be hard to beat from a good draw and only 2 over the limit.

Interesting runner is #1 Howard Be Thy Name. Former Derby winner 2nd run back from a long spell and the first up run at Flemington was a lot better than it reads on paper against a better field than this. Also has a good draw and a saver on him.
