Racing Queensland has announced an immediate 17 per cent prize money increase for the greyhound and harness codes.
It follows a similar boost to prize money for thoroughbreds which was announced two weeks ago and is already in operation.
The thoroughbred increase followed a strike by trainers, jockeys, owners and breeders on October 27.
Prize money will increase collectively by $5.5 million per annum co-funded by the government and RQ, to be distributed according to each code’s revenue market share.
Greyhounds will receive an increase of $3.5 million with $2 million for harness.
