2021 Polytrack Provincial Championships

Launched in 2015, the inaugural Provincial Championships proved a resounding success for the racing industry and was hotly contested by a number of provincial trainers.

An initiative of Racing NSW and supported by the Government of NSW, The Provincial Championships was created to support and promote NSW racing at the five provincial clubs, ensuring that these horses would also have an opportunity to compete in The Championships in Sydney in the autumn.
