Wagga will be represented on Kosciuszko Day after the William Farrer Hotel Super Punters Club drew a slot for the new concept.
After syndicating the purchase of more than 3000 tickets, the group was one of the lucky ones drawn out on Friday.
Publican David Barnhill has already been contacted by a number of trainers looking to do a deal to be part of the $1.3 million race on October 13.
Scott Spackman’s O’ So Hazy shapes as Wagga’s best chance of having a runner in the new race for country trained horses.
However she was scratched from Randwick on Saturday after drawing an outside gate and will instead race at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.
She resumed with a sixth at Murrumbidgee Turf Club last month.
