$30,000 Macca race

SOUTHLAND AND OTAGO horses will compete for a $30,000 stake in the 2016 running of the Macca Lodge Trained South of the Waitaki race at Addington on Show Day in November.

This is the third year the race will be run exclusively for southern-trained horses, but there are some changes this time. The stake has been boosted $10,000, the distance has been reduced to a 1950-metre mobile and three-year-olds are now eligible for the race for C1 and C2 pacers.

Won last year by the Nathan Williamson-trained and driven Statham, the race builds on the success of the Macca-sponsored winter series at Addington in July.

Brent, Sheree and Caine McIntyre are delighted to be associated with the race again.
