A promotion to celebrate 100 years of harness racing in South Australia, will finally come into the spotlight at Sunday’s Gawler Cup meeting.

Trainer Aaron Bain found out last year than 2019 marked 100 years of harness racing in the state with early meetings conducted between the River Torrens and Adelaide University and also at Alberton Oval.

To try and introduce new folk to the sport he created the Aaron Bain Racing 100 Club where 100 people put up $100 with no further ongoing costs for 1/100th share.

After looking around Bain purchased a mare called Suresoundslikealie but on arrival in SA, she contracted a blood issue, then when that was fixed, she reared up and damaged a knee which meant another break.

It has been third time lucky with Suresoundslikealie winning trials at Globe Derby Park and Gawler to ready for her a return to racing on Sunday.

“My goal was to introduce new people to the sport and for just over 90% of the club, it is their first time as an owner,” Bain said.

“The good thing is that about 80 of the owners, plus family members, have said they will be attending the meeting.

“It has been frustrating that it has taken so long to get to the races but credit to the owners, they have been very patient.”

Bain said he believed the ABR 100 Club had proved an excellent promotion and he was looking forward to see all the owners on Sunday   

First race at 1.29pm and the last of eight at 5.22pm.

Suresoundslikealie is in race two which will be run at 1:54pm.
