WARWICK trainer Dayl March will play his part in welcoming harness racing back to Toowoomba when he travels to Clifford Park on Sunday with six starters.

TAB harness racing returns to the Paceway this weekend for the first time since 1994 and the Darling Downs Harness Racing Club has been rewarded with a capacity eight-race card.

Feature events on the program are the BOTRA Christmas Gift and two mares heats of the Darling Downs Breeders G.W. McClymont Memorial.

March is a regular participant on South East Queensland tracks and is relishing the opportunity of supporting Toowoomba's comeback to the racing calendar.

"I tend to race at Redcliffe a fair bit because the track seems to suit a lot of my horses," March said.

"We only have three regular TAB tracks in this region and in my opinion getting more meetings back at Toowoomba is a must.

"A fair few horses were balloted out of events on Sunday and I think that shows most industry participants want that to happen.

"Toowoomba is a unique track and it gives us another important racing option."

March's runners includes BG Three in the Harness Talk Discretionary Handicap (2060m).

"I think it is a pretty good class of meeting and the standing start handicap looks a really good race," March said.

"I'll have BG Three in it. I'm a little bit worried by his 30-metre handicap but he's a nice horse and he's probably one of my best chances on the day."
