WHAT IS THE ARCHER?

THE RICHEST RACE IN REGIONAL QUEENSLAND

The Archer Race is a 1300 metre race run under a set weight for age handicap.

The race is held at Callaghan Park, Rockhampton for a total prize pool of $775,000 securing its status as the Richest Race in Regional QLD. The Central Queensland Amateur Racing Club (Rocky Amateurs) hope to grow this prize pool in the coming years depending on race success and Queensland Racing support going forward.

HOW THE ARCHER WORKS

The Archer Race concept is based closely on the Richest Race on Turf format that is The Everest. Twelve (12) Slot holders are allocated slots at a total of $50,000 each. The owner of the slot can then determine if they would like to run their own horse in the allocated slot, or negotiate a deal with another horse owner for their horse to run in the slot. A deal is then brokered between the two parties as to a prize money split.

Eleven (11) Slots are locked in on three (3) year contracts and the final race slot is auctioned off annually at our Spring Lunch meaning that each year there is a chance to be involved in the race but the winning bidder.

If you would like to contact one of the slot holders please email marketing@rockyamateurs.org.au

If you would like to enquire about the ballot draw and auction please read the Terms and Conditions here and register your interest.
