Super Stable Returns
Harness Racing New Zealand is looking for the sport’s best judge of a horse and the winner is set for a $20,000 prize haul.
HRNZ is launching Super Stable 2022 and it will be bigger and richer than any similar competition held in New Zealand before.
The Super Stable competition lets racing fans, or even newcomers to the sport, select which horses they think will shine brightest over the busy spring racing period.
The competition runs from the start date of October 13 until December 4 and entry is free at www.hrnz.co.nz
Contestants must choose 12 horses for their “stable”, 10 of which must be from the lists of horses for each age group provided by HRNZ, with two wildcard selections.
Each horse or wildcard is allocated a value and the combined value of each Super Stable must not exceed $600,000, so contestants need to be smart and strategic about which horses they “spend” the most money on.
To make Super Stable even more strategic there will be two trade windows where contestants can add or remove horses, the first after Ashburton Flying Stakes Day and the other window after NZ Cup week.
The 12 horses each contestant has running for them will secure virtual stake money in line with the money each of their horses win on the track, so a major race win will count for far more than two or three standard race victories.
Only stake money for running in the top 5 in New Zealand races will count.
The prize pool for the Super Stable competition is huge, headlined by a $20,000 spa pool from Canterbury Spa & Pool.
Other prizes are
2nd: A $5,000 Luxury Queenstown Escape – flights, rental car, 3 nights at Millbrook Resort, $1000 resort credit from Millbrook Resort (can be used for Golf, Spa or Restaurant), $1000 Real NZ voucher for activities)
3rd: A $$3,000 Waiheke Weekend (Flgiths, Transfers, Accommodation + Activities)
There will also be weekly and monthly winners. The person with most amount of virtual money earned during a week will win a $50 Bonus Bet, and monthly winners (being the leader at the end of October, and November) will win a $500 Prezzy Card.
