Keeping you informed of the Happenings at the Manukau Stadium
Big Dog Day Out Punters Challenge
Sunday afternoon race meeting is highlighted by
- Mangere Bridge Tavern Manukau Cup and Carol’s TAB Clendon Inn Sprint. The final lead in races to the heats and it is good to see a number of Central Districts trained dogs taking advantage of these races.
- Pick6 with a Guaranteed Pool of $40,000
- Big Dog Day Out Punters Challenge - eighteen teams competing for $1,000 in prizes.
We are looking forward to one of the busiest days at the Manukau Stadium this season
Race Meetings 24th & 25th February
Hopefully it is just the calm before the storm but the number of dogs nominated for the AGRC and WGRC race meetings in January/February is well down (-19%) on the 2018 entries.
Next week we have back to back race meetings. We are optimistically looking forward and envisage both race meetings getting off the ground
- Sunday 24th February
Auckland Cup, Railway Sprint and Mt Wellington TAB C1 Series Heats
- Monday 25th February
Low grade meeting including the heats of the Manukau Gold Series (C0 318m – Final $2,000).
Given the entries received for recent race meetings we seek the cooperation of trainers nominating to nominate for both meetings (24th and 25th February) on Tuesday 19th February so that we can a least get a broad outline of the available greyhounds for the two meetings.
