All About the New Zealand Cup

The New Zealand Trotting Cup is one of the biggest harness races of the year, held annually at Christchurch. The race attracts not only top horses but high-class fashion, entertainment and food as well.

New Zealanders and visitors from across the globe flock to the track for a great day out, and of course to watch the exciting sport of harness racing.

2016 Victors

The 2016 Cup was taken soundly by training and driving team Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen, who not only won the main race of the day, but also five of the other Cup Day races.

Regardless of where you get your horse racing tips NZ has to offer, most places will tell you that harness racing differs from horse racing in that the drivers have a much less strenuous job, and thus can be of a different age group to flat race jockeys. They can also take part in many more races per day than flat race jockeys.

The Purdon Rasmussen team took the main race of the day, the New Zealand Cup, with their four year old colt Lazarus.

Lazarus won by a massive ten lengths, leaving the usually stoic trainer rather emotional.

Lazarus ran a record winning race in a time of 3:53.10, beating the previous world record set by champion mare Adore Me who ran 3:54.6 in her 2014 win.

The other horses in the field, Smolda​, Tiger Tara, Christen Me and Franco Nelson were able to stick with Lazarus until the 400m mark, until he simply took off and left them behind.

Rasmussen had to watch from way down the track after her drive, Have Faith In Me proved his name rather ambitious after he jumped out of his gear and was disqualified.

Purdon’s and Rasmussen’s All Stars Stable had runners in eight of the twelve races for the day, and won six of them, proving how well the team works together.


Lazarus was bred by Brian West of Studholme Bloodstock and Gavin Chin. He sold for $75,000 at the 2014 New Zealand Premier Yearling Sale in 2013. He is the first four year old to win the New Zealand Cup since terror To Love in 2011.

Lazarus’s future is a bit uncertain right at the moment. He has proved himself to be a winning horse but has just as much potential as a sire. His breeding is impeccable, tracing back to winning American families.

As a three year old he had already proven his quality by winning the New Zealand Sires Stakes Three year old Final in 2015 with Mark Purdon as his driver.

He has been a winning colt since his two year old season, taking the Sales Series Final at Addington in early 2015.

Bettors Results

Placing a wager on Lazarus as well as the All Stars Stable has proved profitable for bettors throughout not only 2016 but 2015 too. All stars seem to have the dominance over the harness world, at least for now.

Lazarus has been the odds-on favourite for a number of races, and looks set to carry on being so should he carry on racing.
