$247,000 IN QTIS BONUSES THIS WEEK
QTIS registration for rising 2yo’s is due by the end of the month and you’d want to make sure you pay-up.
This week there were 15 QTIS races worth an incredible $247,000 in bonus prizemoney!
Just as amazing, $92,800 of that was not claimed because the placegetters weren’t QTIS eligible. All that extra prizemoney that the owners have missed out on.
The QTIS bonuses saw prizemoney jump to $85,000 in four races on the Gold Coast last Monday and Ipswich on Saturday.
Prizemoney more than doubled to $22,000 at Dalby, Rockhampton, Sunshine Coast, Townsville and Gatton.
There were QTIS races worth $27,000 at Doomben last Wednesday and Friday and $25,000 on the Gold Coast.
