Huapai harness racing trainer Ray Green is adamant Sir Lincoln will in time become a good stand-start horse and says the only ones that need practice are the starters themselves. Green was scathing over the manner in which the starters handled last week's Spring Cup Free-For-All and believes some changes need to be made

One of harness racing's young talents in Lets Elope appears to be the horse to beat in this Thursday night's (September 29) Cambridge Sires Stakes Heat for three year olds following an unlucky fresh-up run at Alexandra Park last week.

New Zealand's former world driving champion Maurice McKendry is not obsessed with harness racing statistics. In fact the 56-year-old Pukekohe horseman had no idea how many career wins he had achieved since first getting in the bike some 36 years ago.

The Auckland Trotting Club Trot 2008 Syndicate has sold Tintin In America to stand at stud this season at Nevele R Stud. From a harness racing racing career spanning just three seasons (2, 3 & 4YO), Tintin In America was the winner of five Group 1 races, claiming Group 1 victories in each year of racing.

One of the most successful New Zealand-based trainers to have plied his trade in North America - Pukekohe horseman Steven Reid - could be back in Canada and the United States within a couple of years unless Harness Racing New Zealand changes some of its racing concepts.

"The best horse I've ever trained" was how Taupaki harness racing trainer Frank Conney described Lets Elope following his win in the $180,000 Garrards Sires Stakes Series Final held at Addington Raceway tonight (Friday).

The sponsor of Friday night's Sires Stakes Two-Year-Old Fillies' Championship was almost as happy as the winning owner. Braeden Whitelock and his wife Caroline celebrated their second Group I win in a week when O Baby upset her harness racing rivals in the end of season fillies' feature.

The $30.40 win price certainly didn't reflect O'Baby's talent. That's the opinion of champion harness racing trainer Mark Purdon after his underrated filly won the first of four Group One features at Alexandra Park tonight - the $170,000 Sires Stakes Champion Final for 2-year-old fillies.

The New Zealand TAB's harness racing bookmaker Steve Richardson has released the odds for the four Group races at Alexandra Park on Friday (May 6). The respective favourites are race 5: Veste ($2.60); Race 7: Smiling Shard ($2); Race 8: Thanesan ($3.40); and Race 10: Stylish Monarch ($3.20).

Southland bred harness racing two year old Western Cullen produced a sound performance to win heat five of the Garrad's Sires Stakes Series held at Addington Raceway tonight (Friday).

Family allegiance rather than just raw ability has swayed Anthony Butt in one of the toughest decisions of his harness racing season. The champion reinsman will partner Thanesan rather than stablemate King Kenny in the $70,000 Sires' Stakes Trot at Alexandra Park tomorrow night (Friday April 29), which commits him to the former for next week's Northern Trotting Derby as well.

Veste further pronounced herself as the harness racing filly to beat in the Group One 2-year-old Diamond Final at the Harness Jewels meeting at Ashburton on June 4 with a very easy win in tonight's (Friday April 15) fourth heat of the Sires Stakes Fillies Heat at Alexandra Park.

The richly bred Rockin Roll Lad rewarded loyal harness racing punters tonight (Thursday) when winning heat one of the Two Year Old Sires Stakes Series held at Forbury Park. Warmly supported in his Sapling Stakes debut performance, the son of Artsplace and Rye Hanover took full advantage an economical trip in the trail for the in form Blair Orange.

Mystery surrounds the future of glamour pacer Tintin In America. The 5-year-old entire has been stricken with a 'mysterious affliction' which has kept him off the racetrack and away from all the big harness racing purses available this season including the Auckland Cup at Alexandra Park and Interdominions at Addington Raceway - both in March.

Last season's top three year old harness racing pacer Sir Lincoln is on the road to recovery after a bout of the flu forced him to miss last night's (Friday) Waikato Flying Mile at Cambridge. "He's still pushing out alot of snot and Im not prepared to risk him at this stage," said trainer Ray Green. "I probably shouldn't have started him last time, I don't think he was quite a hundred percent."
