New Zealand has long been the breeding ground of great horses and great horsemen. On behalf of HRNSW we catch up with champion Kiwi harness trainer/driver Colin de Fillipe.
Australian harness racing has never seen a better driver than Gavin Lang.
Now nearing 60, the master reinsman has a staggering total of 6,150 winners to his credit.
Early in his career Mark Callaghan's horses, played second fiddle to his trade as an electrical fitter. It wasn't long before Mark realised his heart was with the horses, and he hasn't looked back. He's been among Newscastle's top trainers for some years, and now has an able deputy in sixteen year old son Jack who drove his very first winner recently.
Paul Fitzpatrick has been one of Australia's top harness racing trainers for over three decades. Join Paul as he looks back on his successful career and the great horses that have passed through Jay Jay farm. Back better than ever after a recent illness, the seven time Harold Park premiership winner, is set to continue on his winning way. Paul Fitzpatrick on Tappy's podcast now.
