Holy Camp Rob ($5.50) capped off the successful day for the Anderson family taking out the Dubbo Earthworx Pace over 1720 metres.

Pacing away well for trainer driver Robert Anderson from gate 2 the Clive Anderson owned five year old son of Passmaster Hanover raced to the lead on the turn out of the straight on the first occasion.

Leading clearly from Womenwhiskyngold, Holy Camp Rob raced through the first quarter of the race in 30 seconds going to the bell still a clear leader.

With 700 metres to travel the Grenfell pacer maintained his lead completing the second quarter mile at a similar rate with Womenwhiskyngold dropping out of contention.

Turning for home Anderson gave a cheeky look over his right shoulder just to confirm there were no challengers.

On the line Holy Camp Road had just under seven metres to spare from second placegetter Woodlands Wonder trained by Steve Turnbull with the Brett Pay trained Remember Bubbles 14 metres away in third.

Sunday's win took the lightly raced pacer's record to two wins from 11 starts.

Holy Camp Paxton ($10) finished second for the same connections earlier in the meeting.

In other harness racing news Harness Racing NSW (HRNSW) announced on Thursday that prizemoney levels will be restored as of July 1.

From today races at category A meetings will be worth $6500, while category B meetings will offer $6000 races.

HRNSW will then undergo further consultation with industry participants about a greater split between the two categories that could see A class races increased.

HRNSW chairman Ken Brown AM informed participants that the reopening of TAB outlets throughout the state combined with revised wagering revenue forecasts paved the way for the return of prizemoney levels.

"The current review of prizemoney differentials is to continue and after a further period of Industry consultation, is expected to be completed in August, 2020."
