A Local Lad or an Interstate Raider


The Affinity Electrical Technologies Canberra Mile will serve as a launchpad into the inaugural Canberra Racing Carnival. With $150,000 in prizemoney and ballot exemption for the TAB Canberra Cup up for grabs, a high-quality contingent of Group and Listed performers has been assembled.  

Canberra Racing Club's Offer to Firefighters

This past summer our beautiful region saw devastating fires, debilitating smoke and disastrous storms. Through these catastrophes however, we saw the best of our communities. Significant levels of financial donations, local businesses collecting and distributing needed goods and many examples of heroism. The community as a whole should be immensely proud of itself for its response in the face of these disasters, non-more so then our heroic firefighters.

From Far and Wide to the Canberra Mile

The inaugural running of the Affinity Electrical Technologies Canberra Mile has attracted nominations from far and wide. The allure of $150,000 in prize money and ballot exemption for first and second in the TAB Canberra Cup has bought a strong cohort of 24 nominations.

“The Club is delighted with the 181 nominations received across the program which launches the upcoming Canberra Carnival. The Mile in particularly has sparked interest from a number of leading Sydney and local stables” said Canberra Racing Club CEO Andrew Clark.

Vella's High Carnival Hopes

There is a touch of déjà vu in the Gratz Vella trained High Dude’s path to the Canberra Autumn features. The former Chris Waller horse is a last start winner in the Tumut Mile and looks to be heading towards the newly introduced $150,000 Affinity Electrical Technologies Canberra Mile. High Dude ran second in the corresponding race last year, the Canberra Cup Preview, which this year would see him enter the TAB Canberra Cup with ballot exemption.
