2014 Queensland Winter Trotting Carnival


Chairman’s Welcome

Queensland’s premier racing period is again fast approaching and it is with great excitement that we look towards the 2014 Queensland Winter Trotting Carnival.

year with racing on the Gold Coast in temporary recess. The feature races historically held at Parklands will now be conducted at Queensland’s premier track, Albion Park.

The mild and clear evenings regularly experienced in Queensland during the winter provide the perfect setting for the carnival’s Group racing calendar.

To accommodate this, minor changes to the feature race schedule have occurred. I encourage you to familiarise yourself with the schedule detailed in this information booklet.

Each winter the industry’s participants and fans look forward to the Queensland Winter Trotting Carnival as it brings together the best pacers in Queensland and Australasia to compete for the rich prizemoney on offer. The 2014 Queensland Winter Trotting Carnival will have a new refreshed look this

To ensure the continued development of the Queensland Winter Trotting Carnival, Racing Queensland will again increase its focus on attracting the highest possible calibre race horses to Queensland. I encourage you to put this year’s carnival races at the top of

your target race list and I trust the information in this booklet will be useful for your preparation. If you need further information please contact the Racing Queensland harness handicapping team on 07 3869 9774. We look forward to seeing many of you at the track throughout winter. Our clubs are waiting to show you what a great time can be delivered during the 2014 Queensland Winter Trotting Carnival.
