Welcome to the all new Southern Harness Website. This site covers Southern Harness meeting at Ascot Park Invercargill, Central Southland Raceway in Winton, Young Quinn Raceway at Wyndham, Gore Raceway at Gore, meetings at Roxburgh and Cromwell and the Tuapeka HRC which race at Forbury Park.
Well bred Spirit Of St Louis qualified nicely at Gore today.
The three year old gelding by Sweet Lou is trained by Graeme Anderson and was bred by Trevor Casey who shares in the ownership with some of Anderson’s regular clients including Pauline Gillan, Steve Pulley and Ray Chaklin. That trio also have shares in Eamon Maguire.
Southland Harness Awards Winners – 2019
Southland’s Harness Awards were presented tonight at a Gala dinner at Ascot Park Hotel.
Unbeaten first season pacer U May Cullect took out the prestigious Horse of the Year title for owner Tom Kilkelly and trainers Kirstin Barclay and Paul Ellis.
One of the reasons behind the success of the latest Southland pacing star U May Cullect is Gore born Paul ‘Tank’ Ellis and the beach training he puts into the gelding.
Ellis trains the gelding in partnership with Kirstin Barclay but prefers to let Barclay deal with all the media attention the pacer’s attracting.
