  1. HI Tasman Man You're certainly right about lots of ex Kiwis performing well in the States. But remember many of those have raced first in Australia. Lincoln Farms' Larry Lincoln won one here before campaigning in Brisbane with Al Barnes where he won another eight races. His new American owners are thrilled with him as he has won three of his seven starts over there. Lincoln Farms also sold Zach Maguire after he had won five of his 32 NZ starts. He won 11 in Oz before going to the US. Bill Haley is even more travelled. After winning four of 32 starts in New Zealand he grew a
  2. Blue. I don't know where you got your info form but it's well off the mark. American Dealer has already won way more than his purchase price. The winner last night recorded some very fast closing sectionals and American Dealer's 55.22 and 27, three wide from the 400, compared very favourably with Tommy Lincoln's times in the earlier race for the 1660m, 54.9 and 27.10. When they sort his issue on the bends, he'll go even better.

  4. The TAB's Shark really onto it today. Tipping best bets for Rosehill in TAB email at 10am when the meeting has been abandoned for hours!
  5. Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen's all conquering All Stars' training operation is to be disbanded at the end of next month.
  6. NZ Met officials have moved quickly to prevent another standing start debacle on Friday by replacing controversial starter Peter Lamb.
  7. The fallout from Tuesday’s shocking New Zealand Cup start is building. Horsemen went a short term fix and a long term solution.
  8. Horsemen and punters are demanding action after yet another shambolic start to the New Zealand Cup. We reveal where the starter was positioned for the race.
  9. Lincoln Farms' Copy That had a quiet cup trial at Addington this evening and his manners at the start made trainer Ray Green plenty happy.
  11. Nelli. I absolutely share your views on this. Pacers always get a fairer go than trotters. I am dead against maidens having to race against winners. It should be the one grade where horses get a fair go. It doesn't matter how out of form the winners are, horses like Lisa Marie P with 7 wins and $70,000 in earnings shouldn't be allowed to race maidens. The conditions stated the club might move lower graded trotters into the maiden TO ENSURE THE RACE WENT AHEAD. They got nine noms so why invoke that clause? I see only eight pacers are to contest the maiden pace. The graded pacers were split into
  13. HRNZ is working to resurrect the Harness Jewels in 2021 with a Cambridge date already set.
  14. It’s been a long wait but the punters’ trusty form guide RaceForm makes a reappearance next week - with a surprise new editor.
  15. Harness racing owners and trainers in the north can rest easy - stakes will rise considerably from August 1. Auckland Trotting Club vice president Jamie MacKinnon tells how.
