This announcement comes on top of the already announced $27 million per annum of prizemoney increases in NSW commencing on 1 August 2023.
“Racing NSW already pays out $58 million in prizemoney for maiden races per annum and now with Super Maidens this will take it to $64.5 million per annum,” said Racing NSW’s Chairman Mr Russell Balding AO.
