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 $440,000. The Central Queensland Amateur Racing Club (Rocky Amateurs) hope to grow this prize pool each year 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. 12 Slot holders are allocated slots at a total of $35,000 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.
If you would like to contact one of the slot holders please email email@example.com
