16/12/2019 Eagle Farm juvenile race could be split

Racing Queensland will consider splitting a two-year-old race at Eagle Farm as it looms as a vital lead-up to the Magic Millions 2YO Classic (RL, 1200m). Saturday's $125,000 race also carries two QTIS bonus payments and is one of the few 1000-metre races in the lead-up to the $2 million race at the Gold Coast on January 11. The 1000- metre start at Eagle Farm is restricted to ten starters but early indications are there will be between 20 and 30 nominations for the race. RQ's racing manager Simon Stout said if numbers justified it, they would consider running two divisions of the race. "We can't split black type races and while this race has $125,000 in prize money it is not black-type," Stout said.
