The athlete must not break net time in the win.
A second win over the 100/120m distance will deem the athlete ineligible for the lift.
The lift will be added to the athletes winning handicap for the Stawell Gift races only. Standard penalties apply for all other races.
In receiving this lift, athletes will not be handicapped to a mark that places them beyond their ceiling handicap. More information on ceiling times can be found within the Handicap Regulations.
To be eligible for the lift, the athlete must not break the distance ceiling time in the win.

The Stawell lift system is a mainstay of the Pro Running scene now. I welcome the addition of a lift for female athletes as we move to a generation of greater equality. I am not sure about the lift for large gifts though. There used to be a time where you would set yourself for a major gift knowing that there was probably a back up option somewhere along the lines later. If you choose to take out a big race then I am not sure that you should receive a lift for Stawell. This is the world we live in though.
I do like the interest it has created though and I for one am looking forward to the first race of the season and a tip or two.

I can't see the logic in offering the same lift for winning Keilor or Ballarat as Doncaster/Geelong. They are poles apart in terms of money & prestige. Geelong or Doncaster is not in the same hemisphere as Keilor or Ballarat.


I think the VAL should have just declared Keilor & Ballarat non-penalty for Stawell. No guaranteed lift.


But on the hand...…….I will concede the stakes for Ballarat or Keilor just went way, way, up!   A lot harder to win now.

Or make the larger gifts worth only a quarter bonus. Small incentive compared to the other smaller races.

Maryborough now seems the odd one out. Perhaps there should be a quarter for it? The field has got smaller over the years and either holding your mark for Stawell or a small incentive may be needed in today's climate.

not particularly.
"The athlete must not break net time in the win"
bigger gifts generally won in under net
