The Manawtu Harness Racing Competition in New Zealand has attracted much attention.
New Zealand’s junior driver Simon Lawson had six wins at the meeting, proving he is a horseman to keep an eye on.
Lawson became a junior driver only last season, and since then he has won 15 races and been placed an amazing 25 times.
This weekends great wins have pushed Lawson to only 2 wins short of the Top Ten drivers in New Zealand.
He is placed third in the Junior Drivers Premiership, only one win behind his rival Nathan Williamson.
Harness racing has always been a popular sport in New Zealand and offers a great opportunity for people to place their bets, as well as having an exciting day out.
