Following the recent prizemoney increases announced for all Metropolitan race
meetings at Club Menangle, the decision has been made to rebrand the hugely
successful Club Menangle Country Series to the 'Waratah' Heats and Finals,
effective from the commencement of the July series.
The 'Waratah', which is the New South Wales floral emblem, was selected to
recognise the significance to the State with a nod to the eligibility requirements
for the series, which outlines that all horses must be trained by a NSW trainer
located a minimum of 100 kilometres away from the State's premier track.
Throughout the year, there are 11 series conducted, with the Waratah Finals
receiving a prize money increase to $25,000.
Waratah Heats will be conducted at various tracks across NSW for stakes of
