Hawera Cup heading to Palmerston North

Originally scheduled for Waitangi Day, the Hawera Cup will now be held at the Manawatu Raceway on Tuesday, March 29.

The race was to be held at Hawera on Sunday, February 6 but bad weather forced the meeting to be abandoned.

Now Harness Racing New Zealand has re-scheduled it to the end of the month. The Hawera Cup will be held two days before the Manawatu Festival Cup (Thursday, March 31).

Both are qualification races for the $100,000 Country Cups championship that will be held at Addington on Easter Saturday (April 16).
