Mount Gambier Pacing Gold Cup 2024 Harness Racing Dates & Field
Harness racing has long been an integral aspect of Australian culture; it’s one of the two primary forms of horse racing. Whereas the other involves jockeys, saddles, and strong thoroughbred horses, harness racing consists of a driver, a durable horse, and a sulky (two-wheeled vehicle).
Harness race drivers are seated low on the sulky’s seat as they race through the track, just like with standard racing. However, the main difference is that harness racehorses run in a certain way: it’s referred to as a pace or a trot, though it depends on the race.
