Tuesday racing in Queensland will be reinstated from next season under a draft proposal by the state’s governing body.

Racing Queensland released its draft for the 2016/17 season on Wednesday and it will be sent to race clubs for their opinions.

It is projected that a return to Tuesday racing after an absence of two years, will generate an increase in turnover of about seven per cent.

RQ Operations Manager Ross Gove said Tuesday meetings would also bring Queensland closer in line with southern states which raced seven days a week.

“This draft racing schedule has been designed to enhance wagering opportunities and therefore generate higher returns for the industry as a whole,” Gove said.

The draft proposal also includes at least 12 day-night meetings at the Sunshine Coast next season.

“The proposed introduction of midweek day-night racing at the Sunshine Coast is aimed at delivering additional wagering opportunities to a Wednesday or Friday race meeting,” Gove said.

He said RQ would collate the feedback from race clubs and also seek input from wagering partners and Sky Channel before finalising the 2016/17 racing schedule in the coming weeks.

Ian Hall, acting chief executive of RQ, said key considerations in formulating the draft schedule included an emphasis on placement of Brisbane meetings in particular at the redeveloped Eagle Farm, avoiding clashes of TAB and Non-TAB meetings within regions and the placement of the summer and winter carnivals.

RQ also met with leading trainers on Wednesday to discuss prize money cuts scheduled to start from April.

The trainers put forward several ideas about how best to keep the adverse impacts of any cuts at a minimum.
