Club News - Methven
The final meeting of the Methven Trotting Club will take place on Sunday 29 March at the picturesque Mt. Harding course.
The feature race will be Woodlands Stud Mt. Hutt Country Cup for the 56 and faster pacers over 3,000 metres. The club has noted the huge numbers at recent grass track meetings and as always will attempt to accommodate as many horses as possible.
At this stage the meeting is likely to be a ‘ghost’ meeting with off course betting only although this may be subject to change.
The recent Norwood Rural Awards results were pleasantly received in the small Mid Canterbury township with both Sarah O’Reilly (Fonterra Young New Zealand Rural Sportsperson) and Ricky May (Toyota Lifetime Legacy Award) winners both from highly respected third generation Methven harness families. Go you good things!
In other news the club has sold 2 hectares of its land to a Methven Hot Pools consortium so in a year or two's time patrons might want to bring their togs and have a relaxing time in the hot pools before or after the races! So if we can’t see you live at the races make sure you tune in on trackside at Methven where the sun always shines.
