Watch Devendra compete in 2015 Inter Dominion final on free-to-air television

Friday 11 December 2015

Racing fans will be able to watch Tasmanian horse Devendra compete in the $1.3 million 2015 Retravision Inter Dominion final on Sunday (13 December) on 7mate.

The Tasmanian-bred and owned six-year-old gelding has drawn barrier eight.

Devendra, which won two of his heats leading into the final at the weekend, is in line to become the second Tasmanian-bred and owned pacer to win the race in the past three years after Beautide won the previous two Inter Dominion finals at Menangle in NSW.

Owned by Launceston’s Viv Clark, Devendra was bred by the Rattray Family Trust and is trained and driven by James Rattray.

Tasracing chief executive officer Eliot Forbes said the Inter Dominion final was generally the only time harness racing in Australia attracted free-to-air television coverage.

“It provides a great opportunity for Tasmanians to watch a locally-bred and owned horse compete in Australasia’s best harness race,” he said.

The hour coverage starts at 5pm.

The race from Gloucester Park in Perth, WA starts at 5.50pm, Tasmanian time.
