New Website For Trainers

New Website For Trainers

Press Release

29th July 2021

Monica Toretto Photography and Southern Harness Racing are excited to announce the launch of a new initiative for our region.

This initiative is aimed at raising the profiles of Southland Trainers and the industry in digital form with a unique perspective. Formulated to showcase each trainer’s individuality yet together on one platform as part of the greater harness racing community.

While results on the racetrack are obviously an important feature, the emphasis of this website is not on betting information but rather on a more personal level with the horses and trainers taking centre stage. Each trainer has the opportunity to add news, photos and video to their section on the website, as well as provide contact information and links to any existing social media accounts.

The biggest surprise could be that this is a free service provided for Southland trainers (and those who regularly race here) with no strings attached, in an age where almost everything comes at a price.

The brain child of race-day photographer Monica Toretto, in conjunction with Southern Harness Racing, the concept behind the website is not only raise the profiles of trainers and horses, but also provide potential new owners a place to go on a virtual stable tour, find their next champion or contact a new trainer.

The website will also be a welcoming place for existing owners, fans and followers to see photos, video and info on their horses even if they haven’t yet set hoof on the racetrack.

Links to trainer’s existing social media accounts or individual websites are also at their finger tips.
