Channel 7’s House Rules winner Adam Dovile, along with finalist from season two Ryan Pusic, will be special guests as Kembla Grange hosts heat two of The Championships Provincial Series on Friday, March 13.

Dovile is only new to television, but following his highly successful House Rules campaign in 2014, he has joined Johanna Griggs and the crew on Channel 7’s Better Homes and Gardens as the new resident builder.

In 2014, Better Homes and Gardens was awarded a record 12th Silver Logie for Australia’s Most Popular Lifestyle Program.

Kembla Grange will conduct the second of five $100,000 Provincial Series qualifying races with Newcastle (March 18), Hawkesbury (March 26) and Gosford (April 2) to follow.

First, second and third in each heat will then head to Royal Randwick on Saturday, April 11, to compete for a $300,000 purse in The Championships Provincial Final (1400m).

At each of The Championships Provincial Series race days, the race club will host a designated ‘Racing and Grazing’ area that provides patrons with a free gourmet barbecue and live entertainment.

Kay Proudlove will entertain the crowd at Kembla Grange.

Illawarra Turf Club racing manager Michael Craig said The Championships Provincial series was a “wonderful innovation”.

“The series is certain to unearth a number of future stars as it has been aimed at attracting lightly-raced and in-form gallopers, giving them the opportunity the earn excellent prizemoney without having to compete in a black-type event,” Craig said.

“It certainly means a great deal to trainers and their connections in the regional areas.

“The inclusion of a $100,000 heat to our feature race meeting of the year at Kembla Grange will bolster an already strong program that boasts over $500,000 in prizemoney”.

The NSW Government has thrown its support behind The Championships in only its second year, investing $10 million and ensuring the series is up there with the best in the world.
