Sunday's Kick Off with Kent Derby!

Written by Jonathan Kay - Racing Post on 13th August 2018

Sunday 23rd September has now been confirmed as Central Park’s first Sunday evening meeting. Track Consultant Barry Stanton said “we thought long and hard about what would be the best date to commence and it was agreed we would kick off with the Ladbrokes Kent Derby heats to herald the return of Sunday Racing to Central Park” “Having made that decision we have had to tweak the dates for our trial stakes, with the approval of the GBGB, and they will now be run on Friday 7th and Friday 14th September and not as advertised in the current Calendar”

In support of the Ladbrokes Kent Derby a new hurdle competition has been introduced called The Kent County Hurdle which will be for 24 hurdlers competing for a first prize of £2500. The final will take place on Kent Derby Final night of 7th October 2018

Sundays will be the preferred day for future competitions and regular open racing and to encourage entries until the end of October Central Park will be increasing its visiting trainer payments to £25 per greyhound and paying a £50 bonus for three or more entries.
