BALLYMORE COLOURS WIN WAIKATO CUP

Although of a different nature, the Ballymore stable colours were carried to victory in the Kidz Kartz Waikato Cup, held during the race meeting last week at Te Rapa.

Contested by ten trotters over 400 metres, the young drivers included Archie and Meg Hazlett, son and daughter of co-trainer Pam Gerard.

Off a mark of 130 metres, Archie (12), driving Caramello, won a tight three-way finish. Meg (11) finished sixth on Rusty.

“She tried to bolt, then I got her balanced, got a drag up behind Monet, angled clear at the 200m, found a gap, switched to the outside of Toska and flew home,” Archie said.

Kidz Kartz was first established in 2003, and has associations throughout New Zealand.

“The Waikato has club nights at Cambridge Raceway, and it gives the kids a hands-on opportunity with horses and a feel for racing,” Gerard said.

“The crowd on course that watched the race couldn’t believe how professional and competitive the kids are. It gives them a good grounding and understanding of horses that they can carry on when working with both standardbred and thoroughbred horses.”
