Privileged to have been able to support the Australasian Young Drivers Championship as the major sponsor.
The drivers from across Australia and New Zealand in this important series represent the future of the harness racing industry.
The championship, which was coordinated by Harness Racing Australia and hosted by Harness Racing Victoria with the support of the Ballarat & District Trotting Club, provided the youngsters with an opportunity to show and further develop their skills.
The series was contested by nine drivers - Tayla French (Victoria), Sam Thornley (New Zealand South Island), Emily Suvaljko (Western Australia), Brendan Barnes (Queensland), Sarah O’Reilly (New Zealand South Island), Crystal Hackett (New Zealand North Island), Samantha Pascoe (South Australia) Jordan Chibnall (Tasmania), Cam Hart (New South Wales).
We were delighted to in conjunction with Yabby Farm Farms, host the group for a tour of our Cardigan property on Friday.
Congratulations to Tayla French, who won the championship in a tight finish after winning the last race of the series on the Inter Dominion grand final night at Melton on Saturday.
