  • Classie Brigade looking to make full use of draw in Free-For-All
    It is almost a case of deja vu for Classie Brigade in today's New Zealand Pacing Free-For-All at Addington having drawn super and looking the likely leader as he was in the 2019 edition. This year however, John will be hoping that the eight year old can stave off the All Stars challengers and go one better in the Group One feature.

  • Sundees Son looking to etch name in harness racing's record books
    The brilliant, but sometimes unpredictable individual that he is, Sundees Son will this afternoon chase glory in Addington's Group One Dominion Handicap over the 3200m. Already a multiple Group One winner, this is a race that has eluded as yet eluded both horse and stable. For owners Colin and Nancy Hair, it would mean the culmination of all their hopes after what must have seemed a frustrating journey at times over the years. "Cometh the hour, cometh the man," may be the appropriate epithet, as we cheer on our champion trotter at 4.36pm this afternoon.

  • Dominion Handicap win the result of a massive team effort
    He has been a troublesome boy at various stages of his career, but today Sundees Son took a significant step in his pursuit of trotting greatness, with a New Zealand record performance in the Dominion Handicap. The win is his 4th at Group One level and completes the much sought after Rowe Cup - Dominion Handicap double. He now appears to have this season's trotting features at his mercy.

  • Classie Brigade looking to overcome adversity in cup
    He may be in the twilight of his career at eight years of age and the veteran of this year's cup, but no-one is letting on to Classie Brigade which steps out for his second tilt at the great race at Addington this afternoon. Added to this is the draw from the outside of the second line which has negated his amazing turn of foot from the stand start. However, this is a horse that has learnt to do it tough throughout his career and luck allowing will aim to give driver John Dunn his first win in the big two mile contest.

  • Following the crazy year that we have had with Covid-19, it was finally time for Southland to get some of last season's feature races run and won.

  • Heisenberg looking to progress cup preparation
    Art Major five year old Heisenberg looks set to provide a third runner for Diamond Racing in this year's New Zealand Cup. He has been good throughout his spring campaign, often with little luck, but should appreciate a drop in class at Addington tonight.

  • Impressive win by Heisenberg heads up four win bag for stable
    Previously winless this season, Heisenberg was a strong winner at Addington this evening as he continues his path towards the New Zealand Cup on the course in three weeks time.

  • The opportunities for our cup class pair of Classie Brigade and Henry Hubert are fast diminishing, therefore it was imperative that they showed they were on track at Addington last evening. Neither disappointed, with Classie Brigade setting a new New Zealand record of 3.08.9 for the 2600m stand and Henry Hubert much better in running second, just a length adrift of his stablemate at the line.

  • Further opportunity for the cup horses to shine
    With the 2020 New Zealand Trotting Cup now under four weeks away, cup aspirants are running short on opportunities to find their best form. For our two cup class horses Henry Hubert and Classie Brigade, tonight's 2600m handicap for the faster class horses gives them that further opportunity to show their best wares.

  • One of the better bred types on debut at Methven today was Bettor's Delight three year old gelding Bryan Boru. A full brother to the former top mare Piccadilly Princess, he did not disappoint, with a winning debut. What is a surprise though is that his debut today was as a trotter, rather than what he is bred to do, pace!

  • Dashing Major produces standout performance on winless night for team
    On a particularly cold spring night, the winning run of late was stalled, with five placings as good as it got. It was the debutante amongst these - Dashing Major - that caught the eye with a stunning first up run for third, against two proven Group One performers in Krug and It's All About Faith.

  • A great night of Premier Racing tonight at Addington
    After a superb Canterbury spring day, it should be a cracking night at Addington this evening. With 18 runners in, throughout the night, we have a host of chances. The feature races on the evening are the Canterbury Park Trotting Cup, the Canterbury Classic, the New Zealand Bloodstock Harness Millions for the three year old fillies and the three year old trotters.

  • He was backed as though unbeatable and in the end it was simply a romp in the park for Sundees Son as he jogged to the line a four length winner in tonight's Canterbury Park Trotting Cup. He now looks set to start the shortest of favourites in this year's Group One Dominion Handicap.

  • It was a rare Thursday night meet at Addington last night and the stable was again strongly represented. Maidens Aimee's First Meddle and Got You Covered delivered good maiden wins, while Need You Now again enhanced her reputation as one of the top mares in the country, dealing to a good field of mares in convincing fashion.

  • Got You Covered well placed for maiden win
    Three year old Art Major gelding Got You Covered has been one of the more consistent performers from the stable through the late winter period. He looks well placed to deliver his maiden win in the first race at Addington this evening.

  • The Meadowlands Pace is one of the highlights on the North American harness racing calendar and was a race that Dexter was narrowly beaten in last year driving Bettor's Wish. While his drive this year, Major Betts, finished amongst the beaten brigade, the day was a good one for Dexter with three winning drives and four placings.

  • Stable junior driver Korbyn Newman has only been with us for just over a month, but made a big statement at Addington on Friday night reining home two winners for Diamond Racing, both at big odds. The way he was driving on Friday, you would have to rate his chances today with his one drive Prodigal Guinness.
