THE new harness racing season begins at Ascot Park Raceway in Invercargill today.

Southern Harness Racing was offering innovative new sponsorship packages for the season at both Winton and Invercargill racecourses, particularly for its midweek race meetings.

Southern Harness Racing promotions officer Lindsay Beer said these included the opportunity for harness racing fans to sponsor a race and gain benefits such as rides on the EH Ball ITM mobile barrier on race days.

“There are also some great opportunities to book an area on-course and get your workmates, club or a group of friends together to enjoy a great day out together.”

Today’s meet of 10 races would begin at noon at the Ascot Park Raceway, Invercargill. Entry was free.Asics footwearNike Shoes
