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...
It may be interesting to hear from those actively involved to relate their knowledge in this regard. To get a group together to race a pacer, what would be the projected chances of making a quid.
The obvious costs are Trainers fees, shoeing etc,...
A while back it was suggested that we have odds on pops beaten at the trots quite often and compared to when it happens at the gallopers, no one seems to bat an eye.
So this month I have started keeping stats on it for Victorian TAB meetings and...
All of us use HRA's horse search or maybe we just click on a horse on the latest results page to bring up its details and then we will quite often click on the Horses Racing Performance tab - this is where I have a problem.
One of the columns in...
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

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...
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?
At the half way point of the season I thought I would compare how trainers are going compared to last season. I did not think to do a save at the half way mark of last season so you have to do a little mental arithmetic and halve their end of 13-14...
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...
Boort Trotting Club, ancestral home to Bill McKay, The Butterworths, Handos, Robertsons and other trotting greats....is celebrating 125 years of harness racing.
"On the 31st March 1934, Walla Walla, driven by Bill McKay won the
first match of...
1.47.7 from the death
They have to get everyone to Sydney for 4 x Heats the week before and to make it even more attractive for peeps to bring them they should add a 50K Mile race on Final Day to coincide with the 100K Bohemia Crystal.
Away from Menangle, the other...
Wins the Lady Drivers race.
Wins the $200,000 NSW Oaks.
Wins the $200,000 Ladyship Mile in 1:47.7 breaking Friths heart.
2nd by a Half Head in $200,000 NSW Derby, set it up nicely to run the last 400 in 25.8! How could you be beaten doing that?...
Does anyone else think that the Bohemia Crystal is out-dated and a waste of time? I know it does not matter anymore as the Interdom is actually going back to a normal arrangement as opposed to its current bastardised format.
When I look at the...

TT just had his first drive in NZ for a very close 2nd on The Fascinator in the 5th at Auckland but did he have a whip?
Easy to see that HRNSW leads all codes,all States in their effort to level the playing field.

The rumour mill is hot this morning. All the word I have from numerous sources is that Dexter Dunn is heading to North America.
