The Archer Information

The Archer is a 1300m race held at Rockhampton Racecourse in Queensland each year.

The Archer (1300m) boasts a total prize pool of $440,000 and is run under weight-for-age conditions.

The Archer Race concept is based closely on the Richest Race on Turf format that is The Everest. 12 Slot holders are allocated slots at a total of $35,000 each.

The owner of the slot can then determine if they would like to run their own horse in the allocated slot, or negotiate a deal with another horse owner for their horse to run in the slot. A deal is then brokered between the two parties as to a prize money split.

The Archer 2023 will be run on May 6, 2023 at Rockhampton Racecourse.

The full list of slot-holders for The Archer is:

Alan & Jennifer Acton, Aquis Park, Archer Park Racing, Bucket List Syndicate, Rob & Leonie Carr, John Kele, Geoff Maynard Syndicate, Mackemme Racing, Ron & Jill Milne, Karla & Peter McPhail, Tom Hedley and Whitby Bloodstock,
