Harness Racing: Hart to drive at Trot Rods

Leading New South Wales reinsman Cam Hart has expressed his delight at being the only interstate driver to be invited to the Trot Rods finals night in Redcliffe later this month.

Hart is the hottest driver in NSW right now as he leads the championship by a street. It follows on from him being the leading driver in the state last year.

Man of the moment

Not only that, the 23-year-old starred across the Tasman last weekend when beating the best that New Zealand has to offer in their own backyard.

Hart teamed up with Majestic Cruiser to win the Group 1 Messenger in Auckland as his season goes from strength to strength.

Now he will be heading to Redcliffe and could not hide his excitement. Only five drivers will take part in the finals night which will consist of 10 races. The other four will be Queensland based but have yet to be named.

“This is a big thrill, to be the only interstate driver invited,” Hart said. “I’ve had the most amazing past 18 months or so, including the huge buzz on last Friday night, and this adds to it.”

Familiar with Queensland

Meanwhile despite only being 23, Hart says he is familiar with racing in Queensland.

“I’ve been up quite a few times and I’ve driven at Redcliffe a few times already as well,” he added. “When I first moved from the Riverina (NSW) to Menangle, I worked with Shane Sanderson, and he’d often take horses back to Queensland and I would go to drive them.

“I’m a big fan of the Trot Rods concept. It’s different, it’s promoted really well and it’s exciting to watch. Now I get to be part of it. We have a lot of sprint racing over the mile at Menangle where I drive the most, but this is different again over just a lap.”
