WELLINGTON CUP PRIZE
NEW STARTING POINT For the Wellington Cup of 1946 the stewards of the Wellington Racing Club have allocated a prize of £5000 and cup, the trophy being donated by Mr. Ken Geange, of Upper Hutt. As it is valued at 100 guineas, the total prize-money will set a fresh record for the big race in January. , „ T Whereas last January the Wellington Cup was started from the six-furlong post down the chute leading off from the course proper at the northern end of tna straight, it has been decided to start theevent next year from the six-furlong post on the main track. With the starting point directly opposite the grandstands it is felt that the race will furnish a more interesting spectacle to the onlookers. Incidentally, the maximum weight for the cup race has been fixed at 9.9.
