Following extensive discussions between S4C and Geraint Lewis of Slam Media and Tir Prince it has been agreed that there will be a Crock of Gold final (and heats) at Tir Prince on Saturday 21st July, the date is reliant on the BHRC agreeing a date change from Tuesday 24th July to the 21st July.
commented ” Whilst we really wanted to retain Rasus as a series of racing as in previous years across Wales, we were pursuaded that the single date offered to Amman Valley in June and the date of 21st July was the best we were going to get this year and we are now going to turn this into a positive force (Rasus will also screen 11 hours from Tregaron at the end of August). I was desperate to keep the Crock of Gold going and came up with the idea of running it like The Little Brown Jug in the US with free for all heats and final on 21st July. Fortunately Geraint and S4C agreed and between us we have found the £5000 prize money that was paid last year. Initial comments have all been positive and it is starting to create a real buzz. Once we get the go ahead for the date change we will start to work on building up the card so that it will be a memorable event. I want to thank S4C for their continued support of harness racing and Geraint for all his hard work.”
