Oriental Club Owner-Trainer Series

The PPA is thrilled to announce the creation of a brand new type of race series for Owner-Trainers, sponsored by The Oriental Club. The Oriental Club is not only providing support to the fixtures but in most cases will be providing a hospitality bar, to which all owners and trainers participating at the sponsored fixture are invited.

The 16-race series is deliberately intended to provide a chance for competitive racing for those who have found limited opportunities for their horses above Restricted and Intermediate levels. All horses completing in any race in the series will qualify for the final, providing they remain eligible. Those running in the races scheduled after the series final will qualify for the following year.

The series races will be held at the following fixtures:
