Racing Queensland and Greyhound Racing New South Wales (GRNSW) have today announced their respective teams to tackle the 2019 TAB Origin Greyhound Series at Albion Park, Brisbane, on Thursday night June 6.
The inaugural TAB Origin Greyhound Series was held in 2018 and has quickly become one of the highlights on the Australian racing calendar.
Queensland won the inaugural best-of-three race contest, featuring an Origin Sprint (520m), Origin Distance (710m) and the one-on-one Origin Match Race (520m).
The fields for the series take shape as follows:
Reserve: Silver Stunner
New South Wales
Good Odds Harada
Reserve: Buck’s Future
Bago Bye Bye
Reserve: Hara’s Dazza
Blue Moon Rising
Reserve: Two Times Twice
Reserve: Dynamite Lucy
Reserve: Fernando Blaster
The box draw for the series will be conducted on Monday 3 June 2019 from 10am. Trainers are invited to attend. Vision of the draw will be broadcast via the Racing Queensland and Brisbane Greyhound Racing Club’s websites and social media channels later that day.
The format will remain unchanged in 2019 with the following events:
Racing Queensland has again partnered with the Mark Hughes Foundation in its quest to defeat brain cancer. The ‘Blue Dog for Brain Cancer’ promotion will be run on TAB Origin Greyhound Night. If the ‘Number 4’ greyhound wins any race on the night, Racing Queensland will donate $1000 to the cause. There will also be ‘Beanies for Brain Cancer’ on sale throughout the night.
The TAB Origin Series will complement a new-look TAB Queensland Winter Greyhound Racing Carnival, which recently welcomed the Group 1 Brisbane Cup into the fold, which will for the first time be run for a whopping $375,000 in stakes.
Other major feature races during the 2019 Carnival include:
