  • Franco Nelson simply too good in Kaikoura Cup
    At the start of this season Franco Nelson had been winless for 26 months and had been through a few stable changes. But what those closest to him knew was that things were on the up after an important operation to improve a bone chip from the horse's fetlock.

  • A happy Nelson is a good Nelson
    It was supposed to be the return of the big hitters, but no one bothered to tell Franco Nelson.

    Then again, perhaps the born again pacer, who finished second in the 2014 edition of the New Zealand Trotting Cup is no longer a member of the chasing bunch either…his victory last night a prime example.
