Great Prizes at Northern Southland Trotting Meeting

The Northern Southland Trotting Club never fail to come up with some great reasons to attend their events and their opening meeting of the season at Ascot Park Raceway in Invercargill on Saturday 5 October is no exception.

Simply by putting your losing tote tickets in the barrels around the course with your name and contact details on the back two people will be drawn to win flights to Stewart Island courtesy of Stewart Island Flights. The draws will be made just before the last race of the day and will be repeated at every one of the clubs meetings throughout the season (9 January and 7 March as well as the opener on 5 October). That means six people will win flights to the island during the season.

But wait there’s more as the television advertisements often tell us. The club will also be running auctions on course during the day for a great variety of items including …a car. A 1996 Mazda Demio Hatchback has been donated by Tom Kilkelly of Regent Car Court and will be one of the fantastic items up for grabs on the day. It is a fantastic opportunity. Other items include stallion services to an option of Alabar stallions – Sportswriter or He’s Watching plus whitebait, cattle beast quarters, sawdust, food hampers, bags of potatoes, steak and more.

Of course, there will be plenty of great racing with the first race scheduled for 12.20pm.

Owners can head to the Alabar Owners Room on the first floor where they can enjoy hospitality throughout the day while an Owners Prize draw will culminate with the announcement of one of the three prizewinners who will take one of three season prizes – first a trip for two people to the Rowe Cup in Auckland in 2020 with accommodation, rental car and a tour of Alabar Stud courtesy of House Of Travel Lakers and Alabar, second an afternoon hosted at Macca Lodge followed by an evening meal and accommodation in the motel at the Waikaia Hotel and third one night accommodation at the Ascot Park Hotel courtesy of the ILT which will be decided at the end of the season.

Access to the Top of the Park costs just $40 for a great day of hospitality.

Already days before the meeting two members, Ross McKee and John Edminstin, and two sponsors, G J Gardner Homes and Regent Car Court, have won betting vouchers to use on the day.

Course admission on the day is free.
