Air quality is being monitored daily prior to scheduled Victorian harness racing meetings due to the state’s current bushfire crisis. Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) General Manager of Integrity Brent Fisher confirmed air quality checks were being conducted and added that wherever possible two veterinarians were currently present at race meetings to monitor the welfare of horses. “Additional measures are in place and we will continue to listen to the advice of our veterinarians to ensure all decisions are informed and in the best interest of our human and equine participants,” Fisher said. HRV recently cancelled a scheduled Echuca race meeting due to a Code Red fire day, while other meetings have been rescheduled due to predicted extreme heat. Fisher encouraged trots participants to familiarise themselves with this notice issued by VicEmergency and said HRV would communicate any schedule changes as early as possible. “We’ll use the text message alert system to inform participants of any significant changes to the schedule. We’ll also advise via social media and our website,” Fisher said.   HRV Trots Media

Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) today announced a $10,000 commitment to the Victorian Farmers Federation Disaster Relief efforts to support farmers affected by the bushfires. Announcing the funding, HRV CEO Dayle Brown said it was important to stand with those people in harness heartland - rural Victoria - during times of adversity. "Harness racing is an industry with roots firmly entrenched in Victorian Rural communities and we are all gutted by the devastation," Brown said. "Today's commitment of $10,000 will help provide some relief for the hard-working families in these fire-affected regions, because obviously people are doing it really tough out there. "HRV is also committed to exploring other ways to support industry participants during these challenging times of drought and bushfire."

In the lead up to the end of 2019, we’re feeling a little nostalgic at Trots Media. In the spirit of celebrating our great sport and remembering just what our incredible athletes are capable of on, and off the track, let’s take a look back at the decade that was. Blake Redden has detailed what he considers to be the 10 best races between 2010 and today. Stay tuned for the countdown as we deliver one incredible race replay each and every day in the search for the most exciting contest in the last 10 years. 10: 2018 Inter Dominion – Tiger Tara It would be remiss of us not to start with a race fresh in the memory. The win of Tiger Tara in the 2018 Inter Dominion makes it into this list for a number of reasons. Firstly, it was the first Inter Dominion back in Melbourne for more than a decade. The build-up felt organic and, for trots fans at the very least, this felt like something extra special. That was only confirmed when Tabcorp Park Melton saw one of its biggest ever crowds turn out to finals night, which was quickly turned into a one act affair. There was drama, however, with Mach Doro carving across the face of the field early to lead before handing over to Tiger Tara. From there it became a time trial and, wow, did Kevin Pizzuto’s pacer put on a display for patrons on-course and those watching around Australasia. Let's relive the night to remember:   HRV Trots Media - Blake Redden  

On 24 and 25 September 2019, the Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) Racing Appeals and Disciplinary (RAD) Board considered charges issued by HRV Stewards against licensed trainer-driver Ellen Tormey and licensed trainer-driver Glenn Douglas under Australian Harness Racing Rule (AHRR) 193. Ms Tormey was charged with a breach of AHRR 193(7) which states:      A person shall not allow or permit another person to attempt to perform or perform any of the      actions prohibited by sub-rules (1), (2) or (3). Mr Douglas was charged with a breach of AHRR 193(1) which states:      A person shall not attempt to stomach tube or stomach tube a horse nominated for a race or event      within 48 hours of the commencement of the race or event. The charges relate to a stable inspection by HRV Stewards on 1 December 2018 at the registered training establishment of Ellen Tormey where it was alleged that Ms Tormey allowed Mr Douglas to stomach tube or attempt to stomach tube ‘The Boss Man’ which was engaged to compete in Race 4, the ‘TAB Inter Dominion Trotting Championship (1st Round Qualifying Heat 2) (Group 3)’ at Tabcorp Park Melton that night. Decision On 11 December 2019, the HRV RAD Board delivered its decision in finding both Ms Tormey and Mr Douglas guilty of the charges. A summary of the HRV RAD Board decision can be found here. Penalty On 19 December 2019, the HRV RAD Board heard submissions in relation to penalty. After considering those submissions and taking into account the respective offence records; personal references and circumstances; the seriousness of the charges; both specific and general deterrence; and similar cases, the HRV RAD Board determined that the appropriate penalties were: Glenn Douglas – 2 years disqualification Ellen Tormey – 18 months disqualification   Harness Racing Victoria

Unbeaten colt Keayang Ignite has got the green light from stewards and is ready for his crack at Group 1 glory this Saturday. The Paddy Lee-trained son of Angus Hall bled during his most recent win at Tabcorp Park Melton and was forced to take part in a satisfactory trial before being able to take his place in the Alderbaran Park Vicbred Platinum Home Grown Classic (3YO Trotting Colts and Geldings). He was sent around before the races at Terang on Sunday and did so with a minimum of fuss. Lee’s brother Jason believes the horse bled from one nostril because something struck him early in the December 9 race. “We think that he copped either a rock or a stone or a knock to his nose, but he scoped all clear and the vets passed him all fine,” Lee, who will take the drive on Saturday night, said. “But with any sort of blood you’ve got to go to the trials. He trialled at Terang on Sunday before the race meeting and he was all clear. “We scoped him again after that just to make sure everything was okay with the horse and he was no worries.” Keayang Ignite, who was bought at the 2018 Australasian Premier Trotting Sale by the Lee family, won his first two trips to the races in October by big margins. And he was again impressive when winning at Melton on December 9, which was a heat of this Saturday night’s final. “He’s going in fit and ready to go,” Lee said. “There’s obviously a couple of nice trotters in it and even though he won the heat, they’re going to be improved a bit. But I’d like to think he’d be a bit more forward from his run as well.” If successful, Keayang Ignite would become Paddy Lee’s first Group 1 winner in a short training career that has already produced 61 winners from 216 runners. A field of nine has been assembled for the $50,000 event over the 1720m trip, which will go as race 11 on the 12-race card. The Group 1 Alderbaran Park Vicbred Platinum Home Grown Classic (3YO Trotting Fillies) is the other feature on the night and has drawn a field of 10 with one emergency. The Alderbaran Park R C Freestone Trotters Free For All (2240m, NR 80-120) and the Doug Hayes Transport Gold Chalice (2240m, 3YO Fillies) will also be run at Group 3 level in what is a bumper night of racing at Victorian headquarters. All the action kicks off with the opening race at 4.53pm. KEAYANG Ignite is one of seven Australasian Premier Trotting Sale graduates who will contest the Aldebaran Park Vicbred Platinum Home Grown Classic finals. The $15,000 purchase was from the 2018 crop along with Aldebaran Knox ($90,000), Jade Nien ($15,000), Aldebaran Jethro (passed in), Rules Dont Apply ($20,000) and Builder Bob ($41,000), who will all contest the three-year-old trotting colts and geldings final. Aldebaran Stevie ($8000) is the only sale graduate in the fillies' final. The sales catalogue for the 2020 Australasian Premier Trotting Sale, which will be on February 2 at Inglis Sales Complex, has just been released.

Local hopes Spankem and Sundees Son have topped New Zealand's ID19 rankings, with Cruz Bromac (five) and Big Jack Hammer (two) ranked Victoria's best hopes in today's first release. All Stars entrant Spankem, who ran fourth in Melbourne's December pacing TAB Inter Dominion final after winning two of his heats, has only added to his reputation with victories in the Miracle Mile and a further two Group 1 victories at Auckland this season. Of the Australian raiders, Queenslander Colt Thirty One has been ranked second in large part for his Blacks A Fake victory, with New South Wales' entrant Our Uncle Sam - who placed second in the ID18 final, won the Bohemia Crystal and was second in the Len Smith Mile - ranked fourth. Cruz Bromac heads the Victorians with Kilmore Cup winner San Carlo ranked ninth, Trots Country Cups champ Buster Brady 11th, Wrappers Delight 17th, Cant Refuse 22nd and Craig Demmler's pair My Kiwi Mate (31) and Somebeachshadow (33) also within a likely cut-off at 36, as is Audi Hare (34). Of the trotters, Big Jack Hammer's triple crown in February and March of winning Group 1s the V. L. Dullard Cup, Aquagait Mile and Australian Trotting Grand Prix was reflected in his second-placed ranking, behind only Robert Dunn's Sundees Son, who's won his past five starts including three Group 1s. New South Wales entrant Tough Monarch (5) and Victorians McLovin (8) and Kyvalley Blur (9) were also in the trotting top 10, while Save Our Pennys (21) is the only other Vic nominee listed within the 24-horse cut-off at this stage.

Not much drives sports headlines in the media, social media engagements or bums on seats like charismatic stars.  Thus the last week has certainly been a blessing in Victorian harness racing. Tonight in the south-west we saw a virtuoso stamp his authority at Terang with five-year-old Lumineer equalling the Dalvui Raceway track record for 2180 metres with a 1:56.5 mile rate. Lumineer is a rising trots luminary and he’s destined to be anything. The Ange McDowall-trained son of Sportswriter has only ever been beaten once in 12 goes (in the Victoria Derby of 2018) and he hasn’t looked like losing in three runs at age five. His performance tonight came just days after we saw San Carlo’s enormous Jet Roofing Kilmore Cup win, which shocked many, including some within the horse’s camp who probably thought their beloved champ a few runs away from producing that. Also last Thursday we had Cruz Bromac utterly monster his rivals – there’s no other way to put it – absorbing all the pressure first-up from a spell before careering away with an arrogant victory. And on the same night at the same track we had a six-year-old named The Storm Inside score win No.12 at start No.13 to further put his name in lights, triggering his owners to declare they ain’t scared of anybody. In fact, the Miracle Mile was mentioned as a long-term aim, and if they had their way they’d be pushing for the wunderkind to line up in Saturday week’s Pryde’s EasiFeed Victoria Cup at HQ. This kind of passionate approach is gold. It’s good for the narrative, which drives the discussion and the content producers love it. I guarantee that to be true.  Of course we also had Bling It On make a killer return at Menangle last week, Buster Brady and Wrappers Delight will continue to make Kima Frenning guess just which of those jets is going to be more supersonic, Emma Stewart has a big stable of potential fast-class top-liners coming through the ranks – and there are of course plenty more, and I apologise if I’m leaving a horse or three out now because of course I am. I can’t let this article go on much longer so I’m just drawing a line... now! Strap yourselves in for the next six months because the Trots Country Cups Championship, the road to the New Zealand Cup and Inter Dominion, the TAB Summer of Glory and the big New South Wales features are going to tell us a lot about the up-and-comers and just where they stand in the Grand Circuit scheme of things.   Cody Winnell HRV Trots Media

Trots clubs in the western region of Victoria have come together to trial a new strategy for hosting trial meetings. Whilst the concept of trialling before or during race meetings is not a new concept, the change is somewhat of an innovation to the region and industry. The calendaring of meetings combine both trials before race meetings and the traditional standalone trial meetings, to ensure that there are trials in the region on a weekly basis, regardless of the number of nominations. The five South-Western region clubs are Ararat, Hamilton, Horsham, Stawell and Terang. Trainers note: Nominations will close as per regular trial meetings. Night race meetings – Noon the day of the race meeting* Day race meetings – Noon the day prior the race meeting* *Saturday and Sunday trial meetings will close noon Friday *Public Holiday trial meetings will close noon, the previous business day. (for example, Monday Public Holidays, nominations would close Noon the previous Friday).   Harness Racing Victoria

Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) is partnering with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA) this September to drive funds and awareness during Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. This year 20,000 Australian men will be newly diagnosed with prostate cancer, 3500 will die of the disease, and over 200,000 Australian men are living with it every day. Help us make a difference by heading to PCFA.org.au to download and share the PCFA’s free Awareness Guide. One click is all it takes to learn more about prostate cancer. Two of our star harness racing drivers in Greg Sugars and Darby McGuigan have signed on Prostate Cancer Awareness Month ambassadors. For every win during September scored by Sugars and McGuigan HRV will donate $500 to the PCFA. Sugars and McGuigan can be easily identified in Victorian harness races during September as they are wearing specially designed promotional Prostate Cancer Awareness Month silks. “Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia is excited to be partnering with Harness Racing Victoria throughout September to raise awareness of Prostate Cancer in metro and regional Victoria,” PCFA State Manager John Strachan said. “Prostate cancer is a significant challenge for Victorian men (1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in men will be prostate cancer) and with HRV's significant network and community reach it provides an excellent opportunity to raise vital awareness of the disease. PCFA applauds HRV for this fantastic community awareness initiative.” Cody Winnell HRV Trots Media
