The AUD1 million The Gong is a quality handicap run over 1600m on a stand-alone Saturday program (20 November) at Kembla Grange, a week following The Hunter at Newcastle.

This year’s third running of The Gong has Metropolitan status which means each race carries a minimum of AUD125,000 prizemoney.

The Hunter race meeting was introduced to enhance thoroughbred racing in the greater Wollongong precinct and entice first-time racegoers.

Racing NSW is confident The Gong and The Hunter race meetings will become ‘icon’ meetings once established and provide welcome boosts to local economies.
