The team behind trotting’s forgotten hero Speeding Spur are embracing the pressure as the superstar returns to the track at Alexandra Park on Friday night. The six-year-old hasn’t raced since March and only four times in 21 months after two injuries sidelined him at crucial times.  The best of his age as a three-year-old, Speeding Spur was eventually replaced as our best trotter by Monbet, although with both having suffered plenty of setbacks they have only met three times in their open class careers. The anticipation for Speeding Spur’s return has been heightened as Monbet is injured again and possibly out for the season, making Speeding Spur almost certainly the besttrotter racing in Australasia.  Co-trainer and driver Josh Dickie says while that will have punters expecting a lot from the stallion, he and father John are simply happy to have him back.   “It has been hard watching the major trots and not have him there but it is not a bad time to come back as there are a lot of big races to still go this season,” says Dickie.  “And he is sound and happy and trotting well so that is all we can do at this stage.  “He won well at the workouts last Sunday and now it is time to go to the races and that is the first part of our job done.  “But after all the setbacks he has had we are going to enjoy racing him and let the results take care of themselves.”Speeding Spur has drawn the outside of the second line in the $50,000 Rosslands Lyell Creek Trot at Alexandra Park’s huge meeting on Friday night and while he could start favourite it is the usual case of punters beware with horses returning from a long spell.  “He beat Bordeaux, who has been one of the best trotters this season, at the workouts on Sunday so he is ready to go but race night against fully fit horses is a different story.  “So he can win but the tempo of the race and how much luck he has could decide where he finishes.” Safely through Friday, Speeding Spur has a smorgasbord of huge races in the north and in Victoria he would be an automatic favourite for because of Monbet’s injury and the decision not to bring NZ Cup week’s major trot winners Great Things Happen and Amaretto Sun north. Speeding Spur isn’t the only big name returning on Friday night with last season’s best three-year-old Vincent making his comeback in the Franklin Cup.  Co-trainer Natalie Rasmussen has chosen to drive him over Heaven Rocks, who will be partnered by Tim Williams, a decision certain to influence the bookie’s view of the market.

Mark Purdon copped a hefty suspension in the aftermath to his breathtaking Perth Inter Dominion final on Lazarus. The suspension actually came from his winning drive on Ultimate Machete in the Group 1 Golden Nugget on the same night. And, in another twist, Ultimate Machete pulled-up lame and was stood down after the win. The suspension stemmed from Ultimate Machete being crossed at the start by Maczaffair, then Purdon angling straight away from the pegs to re-take the lead. Stewards frowned upon Purdon pushing Vampiro three-wide. Purdon pleaded guilty and was suspended for 26 days, which means he will be back in time to drive Lazarus in the WA and Fremantle Pacing Cups at Gloucester Park. But he will miss a string of major race drives over the Auckland Cup Carnival. Additionally, Purdon was fined $1000 and another $500 for comments made to stewards at the end of the inquiry. In regards Ultimate Machete’s lameness, the stewards’ report stated: “A post-race veterinary examination of Ultimate Machete revealed the colt to be lame in the offside foreleg, Ultimate Machete has been stood down from racing until a veterinary certificate of soundness is received.” Adam Hamilton

Although there are a few things to finalised the decision has been made that the Invercargill Harness Racing Club will race on grass on Saturday 3rd March. One of the main issues yet to be sorted is the distance of all the races. They will either be 2000 or 2100 metres. Course caretaker Warren Broad and local Stipe Liam Tidmarsh will look at dispatch points and talk about safety limits before distances are confirmed. Southern Harness General Manager Jason Broad says if the weather's wet the meeting will be transferred to the all-weather surface as early as Wednesday of that week. If this is necessary, the distances raced will be 2200 metres. The last time the Invercargill grass track was used for harness racing was in 1971.  The March meeting feature races will include a heat of the Country Cups ($12,000) for R60 and faster pacers, and a $12,000 Nugget Final. All other races will be raced for either $8,000 or $9,000. Broad says some thought has been given to running a Grass Track Series with Oamaru, Gore and Waikouaiti. Meanwhile a new race named The Southland Trotting Oaks, worth $20,000 is likely to be confirmed in the few weeks. Broad says final confirmation of sponsorship just needs to be signed off. He says Haras des Trottuers have expressed an interest in supporting the race and the NZSB Association is very supportive and will help publicise it to the industry. “It’s down to be raced at the Northern Southland Meeting in March which is two weeks before the New Zealand Trotting Oaks at Addington,” Broad says. A total of $195,000 in stakes will be up for grabs on the day. The club will be holding the Group Three Yardhurst Hotel Northern Southland Cup, Group Three Southern Lights Trotting Handicap, Caduceus Club of Southland Fillies Pace and a $20,000 Super Nuggets Final. Broad says it's the second biggest day on the Southern racing calendar behind Diamonds Day in April. All horses that finish first or second in any Nuggets race during the season are eligible for the Super Nugget Final. Further Nugget heats have been programmed for Winton (31st December), Northern Southland (11th January), Wyndham (4th February) and Invercargill on the grass (3rd March). The next heat of the Gold Chip trotting series will be held on Saturday 23rd December at the Wairio meeting at Winton. Bruce Stewart Southland Harness Racing

It's taken not quite a season, but Ardtoo finally lived up to the potential Wyndham trainer Russell Ferguson always knew was sitting there. "We really liked him as a two year old. We had him set for the Kindergarten (Stakes) but it came undone that day. We turned him out straight away and he's come back as a better three year old. I think he'll be better still in the Autumn," said Ferguson. After sitting wide early, the three year old Auckland Reactor gelding held on easily to win his maiden race at Ascot Park today(Saturday). Ardtoo which is owned by Ferguson and his wife Susan was driven by son Craig making a family affair.   "I work my horses on their own. They don't get company. Craig and I swap horses over every now and then. It helps turn them into race horses."   Ardtoo (5) and Craig Ferguson beating TC Business (8) and Dexter Dunn - Photo Bruce Stewart It was a good change of luck for horse, trainer and driver as a fortnight ago on the same course Ardtoo went over the top of Jennys Rose and driver Shane Walkinshaw in a nasty accident that saw Walkinshaw taken to hospital.  "He (Ardtoo)came out of that good. Craig did exceptionally well to hold onto him. I gave him a workout last weekend and didn't ask him to do anything. He handled that really well so there are no long term effects." Ardtoo is the last foal out of the Dream Away mare Tobetoo.  "I bred his mother and his grandmother. His mother could really run but she had a wind problem so we retired her from breeding. She had a Washington VC filly but she was small so I gave her away." Winning connections - Photo Bruce Stewart. Ferguson doesn't train many but likes a Betterthancheddar two year old which is out of the Mach Three mare Warp Speed which won three races. He bought the gelding at last year's sales for $15,000. Named Bottle Rock he's closely related to Il Vicolo and Stunin Cullen.  Today's win was the trainers first since Ohbeoperative won at the Riverton meeting in October 2007.  Bruce Stewart Southland Harness racing  

Oreti Beach trainer Paul 'Tank' Ellis has put the disappointment of Shezacullegirl's poor run at Alexandra Park on Friday behind him and the win at Ascot Park today by Machjagger certainly helped. "It's taken ages to get her looking good again. She's looking good now and has gone good," said Ellis after the Justa Tiger mare won narrowly. Ellis has had the mare at his stable for a while now, having transferred out to the beach while still under Ryal Bush trainer Brett Gray's name. The mare has officially raced under Ellis's name twice, and he's been able to try different training methods with her.  "This week Hilly (stable foreman Paul Hillis) has been riding her. Dexter (Dunn) was happy with her last week. He said that she just got outsprinted. This week he drove her more aggressively and he wasn't going to get outsprinted. She gets down on her bumpers but when she's looking good and she's all muscled up over her behind she doesn't get down on them." Machjagger (15) beating Wayward Roc (1) by a half a head - Photo Bruce Stewart. Machjagger has now won four races including on the grass at Waikouaiti. The Wyndham Meeting at Cromwell early in the New Year is one of her targets.  "She's got a real good group of owners. There'll be a few drinks over Christmas hopefully for them. The boys have got a crib up in Cromwell so that's where she'll be."  Meanwhile Ellis's quality mare Shezacullengirl which finished last in the Northern Breeders Stakes in Auckland on Friday night is coming home. "She chaffed up real bad on one side. She never chaffs up. It was caused by going that way round. She's in a real happy spot down here so I'll bring her back. Mango (driver Brent Mangos) said she just didn't feel right the whole way. We'll get her back. There are plenty of races after Christmas for her." Bruce Stewart Southland Harness racing   Machjagger winning yesterday.  

Well Said colt Nota Bene Denario showed his versatility when he won at Ascot Park today (Saturday). The three year old, which had led all the way at Wyndham on November 19th, came off a nice early sit before driver Brent Barclay took him round to the front with a lap to run. "I think he can race from pretty much anywhere. They backed off the pace so I thought because they were going that slow that I'd better get around them. I think he probably knocks off a bit in front," said Barclay. Nota Bene Denario stayed down in the south at Brett Gray'sstable after his win at Wyndham and went to the Winton Workouts last Friday where he was driven from behind. He won his heat impressively running his last 800 metres in better that 54 seconds.  "He's a very very fast horse if you saw his run at the Winton Workouts. He's got wheels," said Gray. Flying - Nota Bene Denario and Brent Barclay        - Photo Bruce Stewart. The colt, which was bought by Robert and Sharyn Symon and placed in Terry and Glenys Chmiel's stable, has now won two of his three starts and Gray presumes he will return home to the Chmiel's Leeston stable.  Meanwhile junior driver Ellie Barron knocked off another of her early season targets when she won on her grandfather's horse Mass Invasion today. She had her first win on Somejoy, part-owned and trained by her father Clark, and this is another win for the family. Ellie Barron and Mass Invasion                           - Photo Bruce Stewart.

The only thing more startling than Kiwi pacer Lazarus's demolition job in last night's $A1.1million Inter Dominion Final was trainer Mark Purdon reaction to it. The Canterbury pair crushed Australia's best harness horses with one of the greatest ever displays by a New Zealand pacer across the Tasman. After settling midfield Lazarus was forced to work harder than his key rivals sitting parked for the last two laps in a move that could have had the punters who backed him into odd-ons favouritism feeling nervous. But those nerves were calmed when Purdon had a stranglehold on his champ starting the last 600m and actually chose to hold Lazarus back to his rivals to not let them gain clear air. At the top of the straight Purdon finally gave the magnificent five-year-old stallion his head and the result was electrifying as he bolted clear to beat two former NZ pacers in Chicago Bull and Tiger Tara. The ease of the win was stunning but Purdon was almost pragmatic about it. "I wasn't surprised. Not at all," he dead panned. "I knew I had them beaten a long way from home and Tiger Tara in front was actually quite fired up so I had couple of little looks at him to keep him keen. "I knew I had him beaten down the back straight but I held Laz back to them so horses like Chicago Bull couldn't get out till late but it wouldn't have mattered. "He was right in the zone tonight and he was bolting. He is just a champion." So Purdon's exaggerated whip flourish at the line wasn't from excitement, more satistaction at a job well done. "It was hard to come over here and win, especially with the series being so close to when he won the New Zealand Cup. "And his defeats in a couple of the heats showed how hard it can be to beat good horses this far from home on this track. "But he got better every run through the series and I think he showed people what a great horse he is tonight." The victory was Lazarus's 33rd from 40 starts and over $3.2million and only Monkey King has won mire money than him among New Zealand harness horses and that was from 95 starts. Lazarus should erase that stakes difference and then some over the summer as he still has over A$2million worth of races on his radar before March. He will remain in West Australia to contest the Fremantle and West Australia Cups next month before the Hunter Cup in Melbourne and the Miracle Mile in Sydney in February, the latter being the only blemish on his stellar season last term. So he is unlikely to race in New Zealand again this season but all going well could be back to defend his New Zealand Cup title in November, trying to become just the fourth horse to win that iconic race three times. While a very commercial stud career eventually beckons his connections have indicated they get more joy out of racing Lazarus so if he stays healthy and holds his form he could become harness racing's six million dollar man. Later in the night Purdon and training partner Natalie Rasmussen also won the A$200,000 Golden Nugget with four-year-old Ultimate Machete but were denied the perfect evening when Piccadilly Princess was luckless in the Mares' Classic.

Speedy 4yo Star Galleria showed he would be a force to be reckonded with in this years harness racing Auckland Cup, by beating one of the Cup favourites in Heaven Rocks last night in the $30,000 Gr 3 Summer Cup at Alexandra Park.  The Steven Reid trained gelding trailed Heaven Rocks for the last lap and was too fast up the passing lane winning by a head and equaling the New Zealand record in the process. Star Galleria ran his last 800m in a sensational 53.7 seconds which would be one of the fastest last 800m sectionals ever seen on the Alexandra Park track. Ealrier in the night trainer Cran Dalgety produced two classy winners in Bonnie Joan and Bettor Joy. Bonnie Joan who was driven by top reinsman Dexter Dunn, came from beyond midfield at the 800m to win the (Gr 3) Caduceus Club Northern Breeders Stakes in a quick 2-39.1 for the 2200m mobile. Bonnie Joan beat a game Opoutama who tried to lead for the last lap of the race and outsider American Empress who set up a solid early pace. Bettor Joy also came from well off the pace to win the fourth heat of the Alabar Sires Stakes Fillies Series. Bettor Joy won in a sizzling 1-54.6 mile rate for the 1700m mobile. Star Galleria beating Heaven Rocks in the Summer Cup _____________________________________________________________________________________ Inter Dominion champion Lazarus will stay in Perth for two more races this summer. Elated part-owner Trevor Casey said “Lazarus is remaining here for another two races next month,”  Casey said Lazarus would tackle the $300,000 Fremantle Pacing Cup (2536m) on January 12 and the $450,000 WA Pacing Cup (2936m) a week later. His following targets will be the Hunter Cup in Melbourne and Sydney’s Miracle Mile, both in February. _____________________________________________________________________________________   Harnesslink Media

What an amazing month of racing November has been, both in our regions and the spectacle of Cup and Show Week in Canterbury.  It was great to see all Racing Codes being celebrated at this event.  It doesn't stop, with our Summer racing programme ahead of us.

If Lazarus is going to win tonight's A$1.1 million Inter Dominion Final in Perth he is almost certainly going to have do it the hard way. It is looking increasingly unlikely the Kiwi pacing hero is going to secure his favoured pacemaking role in the 2936m mobile and that his enormous stamina is going to be tested like never before. Punting on tonight's race — it is actually 1am tomorrow but punters don't think that way — is a battle between perception and reality. The perception is Lazarus, after a track record heat win last Friday and the seemingly perfect barrier two, will work his way to the lead and win. If that first part proves true then so will the second, as Lazarus has never been beaten in front and unless he has to do something crazy in this race, from in front he would win. But the reality may be different. Tiger Tara, drawn the ace and with more natural gate speed than Lazarus, could hold him at the start and New South Wales driver Todd McCarthy says he would like to stay in front throughout. That could change, especially if any of the big three outside him in Lazarus (2), Soho Tribeca (4) or Lennytheshark (6) seriously try to cross him early and soften Tiger Tara up. But if it doesn't happen then Lazarus faces having to work harder than the horses inside him on the marker pegs. He might be able to work over Tiger Tara and break him but that could still leave him vulnerable to swoopers such as Lennytheshark, Soho Tribeca or most dangerously Chicago Bull. And as great as Lazarus is, his two heat defeats in this series prove he can be beaten when asked to sit parked, with coming from further back even more difficult. So where the muscular black stallion is after a lap of the tiny Gloucester Park circuit could decide the race. Not only would he be near impossible to run down in front but Lazarus leading would also put Chicago Bull three back on the markers, and that would flip the script enormously. So by all means back Lazarus to win because he might simply outstay his Australian rivals over a distance which favours him, but the reality is unless he gets that unlikely lead, his $2 price is way too short. Still, to beat him most of his rivals are going to have to run past him, something no horse has done in a race before. It is going to be a fun watch for those who stay up late. They could also be rewarded by a Kiwi victory in the A$200,000 Golden Nugget, where only bad luck looks a serious threat to Ultimate Machete but stablemate Piccadilly Princess faces a trickier test in the A$125,000 Mares Classic. She has drawn the inside of the second line, which will be great if Eden Franco can hold the front from barrier one but a disaster if favourite Amaretto runs to the lead early. Yet another All Stars big name should provide one of the highlights at Alexandra Park tonight when the enigmatic Heaven Rocks falls beautifully into the Summer Cup against semi-open class opposition and should win if he gets things right.

With the early onset of summer Alexandra Park says it has the perfect solution which will allow families to relax outside on Christmas day rather than slaving over a hot stove. That is - have someone else cook your family a sumptuous Christmas dinner on Friday, 22 December.  Alexandra Park’s popular Christmas At the Races evenings have been packed out since mid-November, with the remaining evenings nearly sold out but the 22nd is still offering the best availability, says Danielle Upton, Sales & Events Coordinator. “For some work parties the 22nd might be a bit too close to Christmas, but for families wanting to de-stress their Christmas day coming to Alexandra Park just three days before for a big traditional dinner could be perfect! What’s more our packages are priced exceptionally well when you consider the cost of putting on all the trimmings at home, and the time! “We’ve still got Holly packages priced at $80 per person in the Hobson Room which includes our premium Christmas buffet, a drink on arrival and great views of the track. Alternatively, people can opt for the Pohutukawa packages in Top of the Park at $148 per person which includes our premium buffet along with a premium drinks package and the best view at Alexandra Park.” The premium Christmas buffet includes glazed champagne ham, chilled seafood including whole king prawns and half shell oysters, roast turkey, fresh Akaroa salmon, all the Christmas condiments, an array of vegetables and salads, and delicious desserts to choose from. Ms Upton says there also remains some availability on Saturday, 16 December. Alexandra Park’s Christmas buffet is renowned for its generousness and tastiness. Matched with some exciting harness racing under lights, it makes for a great night out. Then after the last race, everyone gets together at The Alex Bar & Eatery to enjoy some live entertainment. Sales & Marketing Manager, Joel Reichardt, says dining packages for Auckland Cup Day on New Year’s Eve are now also available. On 31 December, there’ll be first-class racing, plenty of free family activities, and then after the races a fireworks’ display and performance by band Split Second.
