The TAB Eureka – Slot Holder Expressions of Interest Now Open

01 June 2022

THE world’s richest harness race, The TAB Eureka, gets serious today.

Expressions of Interest for a Slot in the $2.1 million feature, are now open.

The TAB Eureka will have just 10 runners, meaning 10 slots will be available. Nine remain with TAB securing a slot as part of its naming rights partnership for the race to be run for the first time at Club Menangle on September 2, 2023.

Expressions of Interest must be submitted by 5pm on August 1, 2022.

Importantly, all Expressions of Interest must include:

  •        The bona fides of the applicant/s (including all persons involved)
  •        Their motivation for purchasing a slot
  •        Details of how they can promote the event
  •        A willingness to enter and abide by a formal licence (slot) agreement for three years

Slot holders can be individuals, partnerships, companies, organisations, members, industry bodies, associations, syndicates, charities, breeders, groups of mates, etc. Given TAB’s exclusivity, Wagering Providers and associated entities will not be eligible.

An independent panel with extensive integrity and regulatory, legal and commercial functions will consider all Expressions of Interest and provide recommendations on the final Slot holders to the Harness Racing Australia Executive.

The formal Expression of Interest form and an extensive Q&A rundown about The TAB Eureka are available on
