It’s not every day you get to see the fastest harness racing horse in the world.

But that’s exactly what’s happening at Alabar NZ this Sunday.

He’s Watching has been a hype horse all his life. A true World Champion.

In 2013 as a two-year-old he made racegoers sit up and take notice with his unbeaten 8-for-8 season in which he blazed his way to a multitude of track and world records.

In 2014 as a three-year-old he astonished harness racing with his world record performance in demolishing an outstanding field in the Meadowlands Pace.

In 2015 Tim Tetrick travelled to New Zealand and Australia and repeated He’s Watching was the fastest horse he ever sat behind, a horse he said “felt like he had wings”.

Unfortunately 2015 also saw He’s Watching’s stellar race career come to an abrupt, injury enforced end. The timing of this injury means He’s Watching will debut as a sire in New Zealand – surely a wonderful coup for the breeding industry downunder.

At 1pm, this Sunday 4 October at Alabar NZ (480 Seagrove Road, Waiau Pa, Pukekohe) He’s Watching will be paraded to the public alongside Alabar’s other new recruits – Sunshine Beach and Peak.

Sunshine Beach is a horse with movie-star good looks and a pedigree and race career to match. A son of Somebeachsomewhere, he too is a world champion and has the distinction of being the first horse ever to beat the great Captaintreacherous.

Peak is the only horse to win a Group One trotting event in Europe and then repeat the feat in the Southern Hemisphere. He brings a bit of European flair to Alabar and, the horse who made such an impression in his all too brief New Zealand career, has furnished into a stunning individual.

Breeders should contact Graeme Henley (0-9-232 1800 or graeme@alabar.co.nz) if they wish attend on Sunday.
