Clasur Cymru (or The Welsh Classic) has long been one of the jewels in the crown of British Harness Racing and this year Tregaron Trotting Club will celebrate 40 years since that inaugural race in 1984.
The Welsh like to celebrate and celebrate they will with the first running of the £100,000, yes that’s right – ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS Clasur Cymru – Welsh Classic Slot Race.
This is history in the making and a very exciting development in British Harness Racing. Tregaron Trotting Club confirmed today that slots are for sale and indeed the first few slots have been purchased.
Of course from a STAGBI perspective we enjoy looking at the breeding and bloodlines of major race winners and we are already wondering is the prospective winner already a STAGBI registered horse? Who will you be the successful winning breeder or jubilant winning owner? Will the winner be an Irish entry or will somebody go further afield and look for a trans-Atlantic entry? And if you opting for the latter, please dont forget you need to register with STAGBI and submit health documents, import cert and fees BEFORE you can race 🙂
The series of images explains the concept, but in essence 20 slots are available for the 2024 Clasur Cymru -Welsh Classic. Each slot can be purchased for £5,000. Anybody can buy a slot and but a horse has to have a slot to enter.
