THE border town of Texas will hold the first of a new series of country races next year, the State Government has announced today.

Racing Minister Steve said Texas will hold the first of the Sustain Country Series race dates.

Mr Dickson said the Texas Jockey Club would host the race meeting on March 16 next year as part of the Newman Government's commitment to rejuvenating country clubs, racing and their communities.

"We're delivering an additional $4 million over four years to help rebuild country racing across Queensland," he said.

"Through our three country racing programs, the Showcase Country Series, Celebrate Country Series and Sustain Country Series, the Newman Government is providing a much needed boost to the industry, allowing clubs to attract stronger race fields and entice more patrons to the track.

"Texas Jockey Club has done a fantastic job rebuilding after being devastated in the January 2011 floods, and now they're looking forward to putting on a great day for visitors and locals."
