Stent,Harness racing

Top harness racing trotter Stent is preparing for a comeback at the races later this month, after some pleasing work on his home track. 

Trainer Colin DeFilippi gave the nine year old a run at the workouts on the 20th September, where he raced against the maiden pacers.

Stent ran home ok without being pushed too hard, and broke 58 seconds for his last 800m.

Owner Trevor Casey said "he was sore after that trial so we backed off him a bit. I hope we can get him back to the races, but I am philosophical about it" 

"I will do the right thing by the horse and retire him, if there are any more front suspensory problems", he said.

Stent has won 30 races from 69 starts and more than one million dollars in stakes. 


Champion mare Dream About Me has surpassed one million dollars in stakes with her 3rd behind stablemate Lazarus in the Canterbury Classic last Friday night. 

From only 23 race-day starts, the Purdon/Rasmussen trained mare has racked up 19 wins, with her only unplaced run being a 6th behind Lazarus in last years New Zealand Free For All, which was run in a 1:52.6 mile rate.

Dream About Me is nominated for the Terror To Love (G3) Methven Cup, to be run this Sunday on the grass track at the Mt Harding Racecourse.
