Prize money increases to over 2 million
Warrnambool Racing Club has announced an increase in prize money for the 2019 TAB May Racing Carnival
Winnings for the Warrnambool Cup will increase to 250 thousand dollars, and the Wangoom Handicap to 175 thousand dollars.
The minimum stake for the maidens or restricted flat races will be 30 thousand dollars up from 25 thousand last year.
All up stake money will be over 2 million dollars over the three day May Racing Carnival.
C.E.O Peter Downs says it's a huge increase in prize money when you consider it was 1.49 million back in 2015 and now we are heading for over 2 million in prize money.
