Australian harness racing journalist Paul Courts has joined our team. A multi-award winning scribe, Courts will begin duties with harnesslink.com on September 1 – just in time for the new Aussie racing season.
Bringing more than two decades of experience and knowledge to the role of Australian Editor-in-chief, Courts will operate from Melton, Victoria, placing him close to the action at Tabcorp Park.
Along with local content, Courts will also deliver the latest news from around Australia in the manner which has seen him win an international and three national journalist awards.
Beginning his career as a cadet with Australian Consolidated Press, Courts has enjoyed stints as Editor of On The Pace, The Harness Racer and has just finished a 13-year term with Harness Racing Weekly.
Away from the office, Courts is a sire of three ‘colts’ – Darcy, 14, Tobey, 11, and Wyatt, 7.
A boxing fan, who does his share of training, ‘Courtsy’ is also a mad Carlton supporter, which some would say just makes him mad!
Sadly, he has also corrupted his sons into following the Blues.
“I’m looking forward to working with harnesslink.com and delivering the news quicker than ever,” Courts said.
“Being with harnesslink.com also provides me with the freedom of travelling to more race meetings both in Victoria and interstate, so I will consistently be where the action is.
“My phone is always on and I’m happy to hear from anyone wanting to tell their story.”
