Inter Dominion 2018 to Maintain Three Rounds of Heats

The Inter Dominion will retain its traditional three rounds of heats followed by a grand final in Victoria next year.

Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) has worked with Harness Racing New South Wales/Club Menangle and Harness Racing New Zealand to agree on an approach that will maintain the traditional Inter Dominion heat format.

“We, along with our partners, have agreed it is in the best interests of the Inter Dominion series to run with three rounds of heats,” HRV CEO David Martin said.


“Feedback from punters, participants and fans suggests this is what people want, and given how exciting the build-up was to the Perth Inter Dominion, this is also what works.

“We thank the Inter Dominion Events Committee (IDEC) for approving this request.”

Last month, Harness Racing Australia revealed Victoria, NSW and NZ would be hosting the Inter Dominion for the next nine years, with consideration of other jurisdictions joining in during the second or third rotations.

HRV has invited Victorian clubs to apply to host Inter Dominion heats next year, for heats to be held at venues away from Tabcorp Park Melton.

Melton will host the Inter Dominion Grand Final on December 15, 2018.
