The ongoing debate over equal prize money for the men's and women's Potato Races at Robertson is now over.

The major sponsor McKillop Property has agreed to increase the funding for the women's race to $1000.

Robertson Show Society President Leesa Stratford says preparations are now underway for this year's show in March.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Potato Races.
