  • 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.

  • It's good to be back
    While it had been two months since we last raced, for driver John Dunn, it was a case of getting back to doing what he does so well, driving winners. With three wins, all courtesy of outside drives and three placings from as many starters with stable runners, it was a superb first day back at the coalface for Diamond Racing's stable driver.

  • January was a busy month for the stable, with the holiday period seeing stable runners all over the country. Without a doubt though, the January highlight must go to Heisenberg after his New Zealand Record winning effort in the re-run of the Central Otago Cup at Wyndham.

  • The inter-dominions continued at Alexandra Park and we continued to be plagued by bad draws that would ultimately scuttle the inter-dom hopes for most of the team. However, come Grand Final night, the brave runs for 4th by Valloria in the trotters grand final and 2nd by Classie Brigade in the pacers consolation salvaged some pride for the team.

  • For everyone in harness racing, November is like grand final time in racing, with features such as the NZ Cup, Dominion Handicap and Sires Stakes final that all play out. We would be there for all of November's big days, but for Robert, it is 4 November that he will long remember, the day that courtesy of Heisenberg, he trained his 1500th New Zealand winner.

  • In terms of the season's racing, October would have to be our most disappointing. The derailing of Sundees Son's Dominion Handicap campaign and the uncertainty over a start in next month's cup for Henry Hubert definitely put a downer on things. It was the deeds of Dexter over in the USA that kept the spirits high, especially after his two Breeders Crowns at the end of the month.

  • With September signalling the start of spring, some of the big guns were going to be heading back to the track. For our stable, there was huge excitement around the reappearance of Sundees Son and with two starts in September, he did not disappoint, promising a huge season ahead.

  • The show must go on
    While we live in the most unbelievable of times at present, we are constantly adjusting our lives to the new norm. A premier night of racing will go ahead this evening, albeit with huge restrictions in place in terms of attendance. We have a big team of runners that will go around and are represented in all of the night's feature races, but without John Dunn, who is forced to sit out because of a recent trip to Australia.

  • Three year olds continue push towards feature events
    We have another big team in at Addington tonight, including smart three year olds Heroes Square, Carlos Bromac and Sugar Loaf. There are also two debutantes to go around in Dolce Vita and Alluring Tyron.

  • Stars Tonight and Heroes Square shine at Addington
    Stars Tonight has probably been the stable's most consistent horse this campaign and was rewarded for his efforts with a strong win after leading. Heroes Square is one of the real rising stars of the stable, his third win tonight almost guaranteeing that he will be locking horns with the best three year olds in the country come derby night.

  • Great staff effort the key to massive weekend for the stable
    In terms of wins alone, the weekend has been an incredible result for our stable with 11 victories over four meetings. However, the real success of our weekend has been the massive contribution by all of our staff to achieve the results that we have.

  • Group Three victory to Woodstone the highlight of a five win day for the stable
    It had been a long time between drinks - 16 months to be correct - but Robert never lost the faith in open class trotter Woodstone being able to get back to his best form. Last night at Alexandra Park, Woodstone delivered in style, showing toughness over the 2700m trip to outstay favourite and stablemate Pretty Majestic in what was a big run after sitting parked.

    Passion And Power has been the outstanding commodity to date in the two year old filly ranks and will look to stretch her unbeaten run to four wins tonight at Alexandra Park. Her target this evening is the Group Two Delightful Lady Classic for $80,000.
