NARS Series to kick off at Strathalbyn

The next generation of Australian riding talent will be on show across the country in March when the National Apprentice Race Series kicks off at Strathalbyn next Wednesday.

Ellis Wong will represent South Australia in the opening heat of series against Victoria’s Madison Lloyd, Angela Jones from Queensland while Brandon Louis will be riding for Tasmania as SA chases a seventh series victory.

COVID travel restrictions will see Western Australia and the Northern Territory missing from the 2022 Series.

"Over the last few years the series has been effected and had to be cut short due to COVID, but we have never considered not running it,’’ Racing SA Apprentice Academy Master Briony Moore said.

The series will move to Brisbane on March 16 where Ben Price will represent SA at Eagle Farm, up against brother Will who will compete for Victoria.

The third heat will be held in Hobart on March 27 with Maggie Collett riding for SA before it winds up at Sandown on March 30 where Angus Chung will be sporting the state colours.

"It is a fantastic opportunity for the apprentices to experience different tracks, build connections in other states and be rewarded for their hard work and dedication throughout the year,’’ Moore said.

‘I look forward to this time every year our apprentices always thrive when they travel and are all very proud to represent South Australia.

“We also have an outstanding record with six series wins on the board,’’ she said.

The National Jockeys Trust and Ranvet are the major sponsors.
