Auckland – Friday 27 July

Friday 10th August - Owners Night

This event is part of a trial that will explore multiple aspects on the night which will be used to present ideas to clubs for future events they may hold themselves. In the attempt to encourage owners to attend their race days, with options for all clubs covered.

There is also the opportunity for businesses to showcase their products to owners on the night, with a small expo operating in the room. This will be free of charge. 

We would like to offer the opportunity to all trainers or syndicators who are keen to talk to prospective owners to attend, and either have their own information available to present, or be interviewed on the night and allow for networking opportunities.

This is also open to all drivers who wish to network for potential future driving opportunities, providing a great chance for juniors and trial drivers to introduce themselves to owners.

Our aim to have new potential owners attend and talk to people already in the industry and hopefully sign up to a syndicate.

If you are interested in attending, or if you are a trainer, syndicator or business who is keen to be present to promote yourself, please contact Jess Smith at Harness Racing New Zealand to register your interest [email protected]

ATC 2019 Syndicate:

Over the last two decades, the Auckland Trotting Club has formed 17 syndicates, each comprising either 40 or 50 shares and racing between 2 and 4 horses.
To date, all 17 syndicates have proved, or are proving, very successful:

At this year’s Australasian Classic Yearling Sale or the New Zealand Premier Yearling Sale, the Auckland Trotting Club 2019 Syndicate’s yearlings were selected by the top trainers Robert Dunn, Brent Mangos and Logan Hollis / Shane Robertson:

Name: Alta Redeemer
Trainer: Robert Dunn

Name: Christianshavtime

Trainer: Logan Hollis / Shane Robertson

Name: Bet West
Trainer: Brent Mangos

When you join an ATC Syndicate, not only do you get to enjoy the thrill of owning and racing harness racehorses, but you can also be very involved in Harness Racing generally, initially at Alexandra Park and the wider Auckland/Waikato area and then quite possibly venturing further afield in New Zealand and Australia, as some previous ATC Syndicates have.

There are many advantages involved with being part of one of the Auckland Trotting Club Syndicates. These include; the comparatively low costs, the opportunity to share in the ownership of well bred horses trained by some of the best trainers in New Zealand, making new friendships with like-minded people, having total involvement in the Harness Racing industry and having the opportunity to participate in social events and possibly travel throughout the year.

Every month, syndicate members receive a detailed newsletter documenting each horse’s progress, member news, and other information. Regular updates are placed on a phone-in message service, which can be accessed at anytime from anywhere in New Zealand free of charge.

We have already had syndicate members from a wide geographical location around New Zealand, from Kaeo and Kaitaia in the North, to Dunedin and Invercargill in the South, as well as from the USA, Canada, England, Japan, Australia (Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia) and even Iceland.

Each year of establishing a new Syndicate, the Auckland Trotting Club has implemented their hugely successful formula of buying three richly bred yearlings at the Yearling Sales, with these horses being selected by and trained by some of New Zealand’s leading trainers.

Auckland Owners Night – 10 August

Harness Racing New Zealand, in conjunction with the Auckland Trotting Club, are pleased to announce that on Friday 10 August an Owners Night will be held in the Tasman Room at Alexandra Park.

The event is a trial and part of the HRNZ Owners Subcommittee initiatives and will be held on race night. It is free for all owners, not just those with horses competing at the race meeting.  Guests are also encouraged to bring along friends and acquaintances who are interested in finding out more about becoming an owner themselves.

Owners Night will run throughout the evening and will include competitions and draws, the chance for prospective owners to win phantom shares in a racehorse competing on the night and much more.

An MC will interview various owners, trainers and drivers throughout the evening and promote the various aspects of the sport and experiences of the winning connections.

Potential owners can also meet with trainers and syndicators on the night to learn about how they can become part of the action.

There is also the opportunity for businesses to showcase their products to owners on the night, with a small expo operating in the room.

This event is part of a trial that will explore multiple aspects on the night which will be used to present ideas to clubs for future events they may hold themselves. In the attempt to encourage owners to attend their race days, with options for all clubs covered. 

It is important that we canvas as many owners as possible to be able to provide accurate feedback so clubs can provide owners rewards in future.

These events could be an annual event for clubs to thank those who have supported them by racing their horse with them, or they could be held on a more regular basis.

Further information on the event will follow soon.

If you are interested in attending, or if you are a trainer, syndicator or business who is keen to be present to promote yourself, please contact Jess Smith at Harness Racing New Zealand to register your interest. Space is limited so an RSVP is advised – [email protected]
