It is quickly coming around to that point of the New Zealand harness racing season where we start to hand out the gongs for best performed in each age group and gait divisions.

Harnesslink thought we would do a review of each of the categories with our view on where the contenders sit.

Here is our review of the 4 year old trotting mares division

1) Poppymalda - 2015 Season:  10 starts,    4 wins,    1 seconds,    2 thirds,    Lt $34,613

Lovely Armbro Invasion mare who just seemed to get better as the season went on.

Has a few strings to her claim for this division when you look at the stats.

She won the most money during the season for a four year old trotting mare  as well as the most races for a four year old trotting mare.

She saved her best for last when she was an outstanding third in the Harness Jewels, storming home for third to King Denny after being badly held up on the last corner and was the first mare home in the Group 1 fixture.

2) Majestic Time - 2015 Season:    11 starts,    3 wins,    2 seconds,    2 thirds,    Lt $27,416

High class Majestic Son mare at her best but didn't look at her best at times during the season.

Threw the toys out of the cot a couple of times which added to the feeling she wasn't 100% right.

Several good runs during the season but not as sharp as she was at three.

Her two gallops at the Harness Jewels for no apparent reason typified her season for us.

3) All Royal Gal - 2015 Season:  14 starts,  2 wins,    3 seconds,    1 thirds,    Lt $27,757

Always looked a nice mare in the making and the daughter of Monarchy hit a purple patch of form late in the season where she looked very smart.

Had her chance in the Harness Jewels after working to get handy early from the second row but just battled in the straight.

Placed behind some smart horses such as Monbet during the season but just not consistent enough.

Selection

After weighing everything up we went for Poppymalda for the following reasons over Majestic Time.

*She won the most money in this division

*She won the most races in this division

*First mare home in the Harness Jewels from this division.
