10/04/02 Treasure for Trainers Just Around the Corner in Adelaide
Trainers will get their first chance to stake their claim for rich prizes when the first three feature events of the Adelaide Cup Carnival are held on Saturday week - April 20.

Three stakes events will be held as the racing returns to Morphettville - the Lakewood Stud Stakes (1800m) for three-year-old fillies, the Turfgrass Adelaide Port Adelaide Guineas (1800m) for three-year-olds and the Yellow Cab Group Plate (1200m) for two-year-olds.

The winning trainer of the Lakewood Stud Stakes can then aim for bonuses of up to $20,000 cash.

A number of prizes can be won through the South Australian Jockey Club's Trainer's Treasure Trove which is in its first year in 2002.

The bonus scheme replaces the Triple Crown series which was held for two and three-year-olds over the past few seasons.

"This new bonus scheme was introduced in place of the series of triple crowns," TRSA Racing Manager Ian Hart said.

"There's no doubt this scheme will give trainers a much better chance of winning something during the carnival."

"Over the past three carnivals had the scheme been in place a large group of trainers would have walked away with prizes."

Russell Cameron would have walked away with close to $45,000 worth of prizes - $21,000 in cash, a $5,000 Magic Millions Voucher, a $15,000 Malaysian Airlines Voucher and 52 cartons of beer from CUB.

Other trainers who would have also collected included Tony McEvoy ($6,000 cash), Dean Lawson ($6,000 cash), Myles Plumb ($20,000 cash) and John Hawkes ($4,000 cash).
