National Syndicate for Jan 1

New Zealand TAB and Trackside will run a National Syndicate on the domestic Thoroughbred meetings on New Year’s Day, January 1, 2010.

The expert selector will be Brent Wall, a regular panelist on First Call and Racing Manager for Manawatu Racing Club.

Bets will be spread throughout the day on races at Ellerslie, with additional bets placed on meetings at Hastings and Waikouiati.

“The racing at Ellerslie is first class with the likes of the Group 1 Railway Handicap and City of Auckland Cup, and the majority of the bets will be placed there,” said Brent. “I will also be placing bets on the Quaddie and other selected races at the two other domestic meetings.”

Customers can get a share by taking a Win bet on Meeting 30, Race 1 from 22 December until 1:30pm on Friday 1 January through TAB stores, Touch Tone (0800 10 20 33) and Phonebet (0800 10 20 30) or online via the website. The dividend for a $1 unit will be displayed approximately 20 minutes after the last race on the website and Teletext page 610.

Trackside Television (Sky Digital Ch 36), Radio Trackside, and Teletext page 610 will provide details of the bets prior to each race, along with a running pool balance. TAB TV (Sky Digital Ch 35) will also provide updates throughout the day.
