On Track Talking

The NZ Harness Racing Trainers & Drivers Assn. has been approached by the RIB and HRNZ, voicing their concern at drivers talking and laughing during race preliminaries and pre-race assemblies, suggesting that such behaviour reflects badly on the professionalism of participants.

When you’ve been involved in various ways in a job for more than 36 years, or about half your life, it is a bit of a wrench to give it up. However, for a number of reasons, I’ve decided that it’s time to call time on my time as Secretary of the Trainers & Drivers Assn, as I have no wish to simply hang around until I’m not capable of doing a decent job anymore.

NZ Amateur Drivers Champs

Have you got an R35 to R50 pacer that you’d relish the idea of lining up in a $10K penalty free race with only 10 competitors? Well, next week, you get that opportunity.
