Hi everyone, we're just one day out now from one of the most exciting weekends in New Zealand harness racing history.

Mike Grainger says, "stick with Allblack Stride in the Copthorne Commodore 2-year-old pace." Two awful barrier draws have played havoc with his form but neither run has been poor.

Congratulations to David Butt, John Dunn, Jonny Cox, Matthew Williamson and Tim Williams who tipped out winners last week.

Harness racing reinsman Sam Smolenski has good and bad news for the connections of his arch-rival Blitzthemcalder in the ultimate two-horse race at the Harness Jewels on Saturday.

The 4YO Diamond is not the most anticipated race on Saturday's (June 1) Harness Jewels card, but for Yaldhurst harness racing trainer Brad Mowbray it will undoubtedly take centre stage.

With a family controversy behind him, champion Aussie harness racing driver Luke McCarthy is turning his sights to some unfinished business in New Zealand.

Prolific harness racing owner Trevor Casey knows it is not safe to put all your eggs in the one basket. That is why Casey has spread his chances of Harness Jewels glory across four different races, and three separate trainers.

Pacing's most stunning debut season is in for a shock extension.

News has just come through that Terror To Love won his Harness Jewels trial today at Ashburton (Saturday May 25) in a sizzling 1-52.5, which is actually quicker than the four-year-old & older one mile NZ record of Gold Ace (1-52.6).

The barrier draw has been conducted for all 12 Harness Jewels races, and the results of it look to have made for some very intriguing contests.

The defending harness racing NZ Amateur Champion, Jeff Darby, leads the 2013 competition after the first two heats of competition at Addington last night.

I know it is hard to believe, but astute harness racing trainer Cran Dalgety believes Christen Me is an even better horse now than he was when he went 1-50.5 in the Chariots Of Fire (Group One) at Menangle.

Nigel McGrath is going into the Harness Jewels with plenty of confidence. After all, his horse did just break the 2600m New Zealand three-year-old record of none other than Auckland Reactor.

Congratulations to Andrew Armour, Anthony Butt, Blair Orange, David Butt, John Dunn and Matthew Williamson who all tipped out winners last week.

The Gold Ace form rollercoaster hit another mini high yesterday, suggesting he is not ready to concede next week's Jewels to arch rival Terror To Love. The five-year-old stallion has been the most frustrating of the elite pacers this season, not just for trainer Steven Reid but his ever-shrinking army of harness racing followers.

After a decade of running the NZ Champs for Amateur Drivers as non tote events, the 2013 edition will graduate to full tote race status. After qualifying through their regional competition the top twelve Amateurs in the country will contest the four heats at Addington and Alexandra Park later this week.
