Discuss Australian harness racing here
Maybe it's common knowledge to some, but it wasn't to me and I've seen quite a few people mention it over the years. Once fields are out it's hard to know what the exact conditions of the race were. Short of having a gazette which changes anyway...
From time to time, usually within this Australian Forum you will see members banned without an explanation, and may wonder why.
99% of the time it is because these accounts are created by one of two people who have nothing better to do then to...
With ongoing drug scandals in Australia it's important that everybody understands what can and can't be said on a public forum from a legal perspective.
A public forum IS NOT the same as chatting to people at the track. Legally it's akin to...
That was a gutsy win by Lenny, forced to run <27.6 for Q2 and then managed 27.3 for Q4, not many can do that.
I must say I liked Anthony Butt making him work Q2, it may not have particularly helped Major Secret but be blowed letting Chris Alford...
Inspired by fellow poster on this Forum Messenger, aka Kevin O'Donoghue who's 40 years following the trots has had him essentially ignore the good old Squaregaiter, i have decided to open a thread dedicated to the Trotters only.
As Kev has alluded...
I have had to attach this blurry image or you would not believe it. I could not find a link and being a Melbourne story I doubt there will be a SMH link - usually the best way to get an Age story link.
Yep the The Age has a full page feelgood...
I have been a little fearful that our board is dying. I figure that if people visit the board and find nothing new - after a while they will not bother visiting. I may however be wrong (and maybe the board needs me to take a holiday - dont be...
This 2yo colt out of Bronte Jones rated 1.55.9 winning the 1st ht of the Vicbred Platinum Home Grown tonight at Bendigo beating the latest bling - Show Me The Bling.
Seems there has been 6 positives to this in Nsw harness although non yet in Gallops.
Seems like it is the same as Epo and can cause a horse to collapse and even die.Can be administered by needle or tablet.
Dare say we need to wait and to see the...
This post is inspired by a visit to Gower Park in Preston, a northern suburb of Melbourne.
The remnants of the training and trialling track are still very visible:
track, rails, tie ups , wash and even signs.
The US Trotting Association have...
BIG highlight for me last week...one for the battlers

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL THE MINI TROT DRIVERS 3YO & OLDER PACE

Chalked up his 50th Albion Park victory on saturday night
What a super horse this fella has been...every stable should have one
HRA have been kind enough to give me the full Trainers chronicle/premiership table (up to this week) in Excel format so I have been able to sort them however I like and following on from the thread about whether G.Hall could be harmful for WA...
First of all Catch Your Breath going 1.53.9 at Kilmore on Sunday and today Fearless Leader going 1.55.9 at Horsham. How many more records will fall this summer?
Someone at work today made an innocent remark that for some reason brought a horse to mind :) The problem is the name of THAT horse just won't come out. Have played around in my head all afternoon and the best I can come up with is it has...
I stand to be corrected but I think this may be Vic's first 2yo race for the season
6 starters for you breeding enthusiasts to look up.
I haven't done so yet myself but No.3 jumped out at me
I know many will say that it does not matter if nobody goes to the trots it is all about turnover.
I cannot really agree as I do not see tomorrow's owners experiencing the desire to become part of the action via a screen
It is for this reason that...
A significant part of Bendigo District's trotting history will be at Lord's Raceway this Wednesday.
The 1917 New Zealand Trotting Cup, won by Adelaide Direct
Australia’s First Winner of the New Zealand Trotting Cup
We need more contributors on this forum - I reckon this is one that everyone can get involved with.
Your best thing may be a horse, a story, a ........ whatever takes your fancy.
I will kick it off:
The excitement of Scott Rains winning on...
Not sure why this has not made it onto here yet but the promised audit into Victorian harness racing was released last Friday.
Can someone please explain LCRT to me> Says last chance to race truly but what are the ramifications of that statement?
To make sure I balance out my negativity, I am starting this thread and I am going to keep it going (with your help I hope). I think I may have started such a thread long ago but this time I want it to flourish. It must not be in place of positive...
I keep my own database of Victoria's winning trainers and like to include where they are based BUT sometimes I swear that our trainers go out of their way to make their location unusual.
I generally track their place names down but tonight Dylan...
