Congratulations to all the trainers and QTIS owners who have supported the Queensland racing industry over the past twelve months.
It’s been tremendous to see how many horses participate in the scheme and the bonus prizemoney on offer is certainly worth racing for.
We’re proud to announce the inaugrual QTIS Premiers with Peter Fleming a clear winner in the 2yo division, earning $214,600 in bonus prizemoney for the racing season with 13 QTIS wins.
Kelly Schweida (pictured, Dan Costello Racing)was second with $145,900 and Tony Gollan pocketed $106,400 for third.

A new committee for the Thoroughbred Breeders Queensland Association has been announced following the close of Committee nominations last week.
Erica Bates and Gary Turkington were returned unopposed, while prominent Manager of Glenlogan Park, Steve Morley will be part of the 2013-14 committee in a major coup for the TBQA.
“Having now been at the helm of Glenlogan Park for over 12 years I have had a good opportunity to understand many of the intricacies that make this industry function,” said Steve.
He said fostering a union between owners, trainers and breeders, ensuring QTIS operates at its’ optimum level and improving the level of professionalism within the Queensland breeding industry while rewarding successful participants are his key objectives.
The new racing season is underway, and the QTIS bonus prizemoney was a little lighter this week as we wait for the 2yos to hit the track.
There was $128,000 up for grabs across 12 QTIS races with an extensive country program including meetings at Mackay, Tambo, Nanango, Middlemount, Mareeba and Corfield.
This week’s QTIS winners were Grawlix (pictured, Dan Costello Racing), Heroic Action, Tisani Tomso, Dyna Rose, Our Stromberg, I Do Care, Restraining Order, Elin, Transpire, Rusty Colours, Kiboloy and Muscovy.
A total of $110,300 was won by happy QTIS owners.
Queensland bred gallopers didn’t disappoint on the opening weekend of the 2013-14 racing season.
Hidden Dragon and Show a Heart both recorded winners at Moonee Valley when Stable Star and Dayita saluted for the two prominent sires.
Back on maroon soil and Rusty Colours, (pictured Dan Costello Racing) by Brabury’s Luck took out the $85,000 QTIS 3yo Hcp over 1600m in Doomben’s biggest race of the weekend.
August 1 marks the first day of another season when new goals and dreams are set and worked towards by industry stakeholders.
August 1 also means the awards season is ready to commence which will recognise the achievements of stakeholders in the season just past.
Racing Queensland (RQ) will launch two new and exciting initiatives in 2013 to honour two important and valued stakeholder groups.
Firstly, an awards night for our apprentices has been introduced to recognise their accomplishments and to encourage them on their journey of becoming a senior jockey.
As part of RQ’s ongoing commitment to country racing, Queensland Country Awards will also be supported across Queensland, where the country jockey, trainer and horse in each respective region is recognised and celebrated.
The dates for the awards are:
2013 Queensland Apprentice Awards Night | Monday, September 2, 2013
2013 Queensland Thoroughbreds Awards Night | Saturday, September 28, 2013
2013 Queensland Harness Awards Night | Sunday, October 13
