Ladbrokes Protostar slot applications open

Applications for slots into the Ladbrokes Protostar are now open.

The Protostar – restricted to 10 starters – will take centre stage on July 27, 2024 as a part of Blacks A Fake night.

Slots have been set at $30,000, with eight available for purchase. Ladbrokes, as the race sponsor, will receive two slots.

Exclusively for two-year-olds, the $500,000 race will be run over 1660 metres at The Creek throughout the nation’s premier winter carnival, commencing in 2024.

The new feature race will utilise the highly successful slot race concept, with further detail regarding slots to be announced shortly.

As a result, the Protostar will become Queensland’s richest annual harness race.

The eight slots will be determined via two ballots as follows:

> Three for Queensland located, individuals, businesses or syndicates: and,

> Five for the remaining eligible applicants (including any unsuccessful Queensland located individuals, businesses or syndicates).

Applications close on December 18, 2023.
