Horseracing in New Zealand

Horseracing in New Zealand consists of two forms: Thoroughbred and Standardbred or harness racing. Harness racing is often called "trotting" in New Zealand.

Notable Thoroughbred racehorses from New Zealand include Carbine, Phar Lap, Nightmarch, Il Tempo, Sunline, Grey Way, Desert Gold, Tulloch and Rising Fast. The top Standardbred horses were Cardigan Bay, Robalan and Young Quinn.

The most famous New Zealand Standardbred is the pacer Cardigan Bay. Stanley Dancer drove Cardigan Bay to $1 million in winnings in 1968, the first harness horse to surpass that milestone in American history.[1] Dancer and Cardigan Bay appeared together on The Ed Sullivan Show.
