Harness racing in Australia and New Zealand is also know as the “Trots”, which is short for trotting. Standardbred horses are used in both pacing and trotting events and races are usually between 1600 metres and 2650 metres.
The Inter Dominion is one of the largest and most famous harness races in the country, in which horses from Australia and New Zealand have contested since 1936, alternating between AU and NZ each year.
