Kerryn Manning talks Teal, and making history
By Dave Di Somma, Harness Racing News Desk
A chance to own what’s believed to be a one-off piece of trotting memorabilia is currently on Trade Me.
They are a pair of Teal Pants signed by history-making driver Kerryn Manning. They were given to Harness Racing New Zealand to auction off as part of the Teal Pants campaign to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research. The auction finishes on Thursday afternoon.
Earlier this year Manning became the first woman in history to rein home 4000 winners, she also created history when she trained and drove the 2015 New Zealand Cup winner Arden Rooney.
The Victorian took time out from her busy schedule to talk to HRNZ Marketing about the pants and what she thinks they are worth, as well as her achievements on the track.
