|Trainers please note: If you are the trainer of a horse appearing anywhere on this list, and do not wish to start in the Harness Jewels, your obligation is to withdraw the horse with either HRNZ's Handicapping Department, or NZ Metropolitan Trotting Club Inc, at your earliest convenience. The importance of this can not be stressed enough given fixed odds betting on these events.|
It is intended that 12 horses be included in the field plus one additional emergency. Should no Australian invitee accept then the 12th horse in order of entry as per the conditions 1 & 2 of the selection criteria shall be declared in the field. (ie) 11 NZ horses plus 1 Australian invitee (and 1 NZ ballot) or 12 NZ horses (and 1 NZ Ballot).
