Franco Nelson now racing in Australia

Harness racing exports in the last few weeks have been Beach Skipper, Inner light and Speedy Mach.

They will all do their future racing in Australia.

The Clive and Rona McKay owned Franco Nelson is in Australia already and will race out of the Tritton stable based at Menangle.

Shane and Lauren Tritton have a good record of rejuvenating older horses and have already revitalized good horses like Mach Beauty, Suave Stuey Lombo and a host of others.


The Christchurch Casino New Zealand Cup futures market has dwindled down to twenty contenders, after the recent withdrawal of the Cran Dalgety pairing of Alpha Rock and Art Union. 

The All Stars Stable have a stranglehold on the Cup favouritism with the top four favourites all trained by Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen.

Last years cup winner Lazarus, is a clear favourite on the FF win futures market at $2.20, with stablemate Heaven Rocks second favourite on $3.00. Have Faith In Me($9.00) and Dream About Me ($12.00) round out the top four favourites for the All Stars Stable. 

Titian Banner who ran third in the great race last year when trained by Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen is in the next line of betting at $13.00. Titian Banner is trained by Graeme Anderson and is currently the $1.70 favourite for the Hannon Memorial at Oamaru tomorrow.

New Zealand Cup Futures Market Option 986
