HARNESS Racing New South Wales is pleased to announce that industry benefactors Kevin and Kay Seymour are sponsoring the inaugural Evolution Race Series.

Celebrating their involvement in the industry which spans half a century this year makes it a “perfect fit” according HRNSW chief executive John Dumesny.

“What makes a perfect fit is that the sponsors Kevin and Kay Seymour are celebrating their 50 year evolution in our great code of racing,” Dumesny said.

“Their generosity to the industry now and for the past years must certainly be acknowledged by all not only here in the premier state but Australia wide.

“With the support of owners and trainers, the Evolution Series can not only be a success but it can grow in future years.”

The Evolution Series is for NSW Breeders Challenge eligible and sustained three-year-olds which commences in September, 2017.

Races are restricted to 3C0/3C1 horses that have not won more than $40,000 in their career.

Heats worth $10,000 will be held in each region with a $20,000 final to be held at Tabcorp Park Menangle.

The only months the Evolution Series will not be held are March, May, June and July due to the Bathurst Gold Crown Carnival and the NSW Breeders Challenge.

“HRNSW is breaking new ground with the Evolution Series and this is due to the collective efforts of the NSW Breeders Association and the Clubs,” Dumesny said.

“We are extremely thankful for their collective contributions which will allow $10,000 heats and $20,000 finals.”
