Added Queensland Incentives Ramp Up Ante

Friday, 3rd January 2020

For a long time derided as the poor incentive scheme cousin of NSW and Victorian racing, Queensland – allied to dramatically adding to its feature race program – is really upping the ante with QTIS. The Queensland Throughbred Incentive Scheme, already boasting a superbly lucrative 2YO and 3YO incentive scheme that provides added incentive for fillies, will be bolstered in 2020 through the addition of the $200,000 QTIS Gold Jewel and QTISx bonuses on all stakes races during the new-look TAB Queensland Racing Carnival. According to racingqueensland.com.au, Racing Queensland GM, Corporate Affairs, Mary Collier is up-beat about the Carnival enhancements. “The Carnival is starting to really take shape and we’re looking forward to adding the QTIS Gold Jewel,” Ms Collier said. “In addition to the QTIS Gold Jewel, there’s more than $1.7 million in QTISx sales vouchers available across the Carnival – along with a further $340,000 in breeders’ bonuses – demonstrating why we believe QTIS is the best thoroughbred incentive scheme.” Meanwhile, Thoroughbred Breeders Queensland Association President Basil Nolan said the introduction of QTISx had been a boon for the industry as a whole. "The benefit of QTISx is the recognition and reward it provides to the entire industry including our breeders," Mr Nolan said. “There’s more reason than ever for people to be supporting Queensland-bred horses.”
