The Goulburn race dates for the current 2019/20 harness racing season have been released. The Southern Tablelands club will once again conduct 10 race meetings at the Goulburn Paceway with the first scheduled for Melbourne Cup eve on Monday the 4th of November, 2019.
The club will host three feature race date meetings commencing with the ever more popular Hewitt Memorial race day on Sunday 12th January, 2020. In a change from previous years, the Goulburn Carnival of Cups race day has moved away from the Australia Day week end and will this season be held on Sunday 19th January, 2020. By scheduling the club’s two most important meetings only a week apart the club’s committee is hopeful of carrying over the momentum created on Hewitt Memorial day into the Goulburn Cup race day meeting.
The Goulburn Sapling Stakes race day will maintain its place on the second Monday of May, and this year the meeting will be boosted through the inclusion of a heat for the $1 million Pace; a new and exciting race for Up to 70 rating points horses. With total prize-money of nearly $1.5 million being on offer, the million dollar final will be contested at Tabcorp Park Menangle on May 31, 2020 https://www.hrnsw.com.au/news/2341/the-1million-pace
