It’s two months to the day till the IRT Harness Jewels at Cambridge. 

After every race meeting the leaderboard for each category is being updated to work out who’s in and who’s not.  The nine Group Ones, each with a stake of $100,000, will be held on Sunday June 6.

This week Enjoy Me, who was second in the 3YO Diamond behind runaway leader Bettor Twist, has been withdrawn.   

The leaders of each category will be easily seen on race day with their drivers donning the Harness Jewels yellow silks.

Unbeaten two-year-old trotter Highgrove was a winner in yellow at Addington on Saturday. It was his third in as many starts for Robert and John Dunn.  He is a clear leader of the 2YO Ruby. 

Natalie Rasmussen was also wearing yellow in the Easter Cup with 4YO Diamond leader Amazing Dream third behind Self Assured and Spankem.  

Among the Harness Jewels leaders in action at Addington’s Premier night this Friday will be Krug (3YO Emerald) in the New Zealand Derby, Bolt For Brilliance (4YO Ruby) in the New Zealand Trotting Championship and Wanna Play With Me (3YO Ruby)  in the New Zealand Trotting Derby.
