We caught up with South Island Ambassador Sam Ottley! 

What’s your favourite colour
Blue

How do you keep fit, and what are your tips to keep healthy?
I’m a bit slack when it comes to fitness but our jobs are pretty full on at times so does that count? I think eating healthier is a big thing and makes you feel better.

If you weren’t involved in harness racing what do you imagine you would be doing now?
Vet Nurse

If you had to go into quarantine with one other person who would that be and why?
Stevie, would get rather hungry otherwise! 

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received from anyone?
Have patience

If you could only order one drink, what would it be?
Raspberry & Coke

What would you say to anyone considering a career in harness racing?
If you love horses and good people go for it, nothing to lose can always lead to other things.

What’s your favourite holiday destination and why?
Gold Coast, can be relaxing but also lots to do if you want.

What does it mean to be an Ambassador for Team Teal and why is the campagin important to you?
Great to be apart of a campaign this is getting bigger every year and getting more people aware of an illness a lot of us knew little about.
