Dubbo Turf Club will host the Barastoc Summer Sprint Series across the Club’s three meetings in January and February.

Dubbo Turf Club and leading equine feed producers Barastoc Racing have partnered to present the Barastoc Summer Sprint Series across the Club’s three meetings in January and February.

The Series will comprise three heats across the meetings:

  • Monday 15th January: Benchmark 58 Handicap 1000m (Heat 1)
  • Monday 5th February: Benchmark 58 Handicap 1000m (Heat 2)
  • Sunday 18th February: Benchmark 58 Handicap 1100m (Heat 3)

The winning horses of each heat will take home 16 bags of Barastoc feed, while the overall winner of the series will pocket one tonne of Barastoc feed for their stable.

“We are really thrilled to partner with Barastoc to host this series and add another element to our three key summer meetings in 2024,” said DTC’s General Manager, Sam Fitzgerald.

“The Benchmark 58 1000m and 1100m races are always hotly contested races at Dubbo, so we are delighted to be able to provide an added bonus to the lucky winners of each heat and the overall series winner.

“Adam Campbell and the team at Barastoc have provided a huge bounty of product to be awarded across the series and we are extremely thankful for their generosity and support.”
