World Harness Racing
This unique World Harness Racing book is a labour of true love provided to you for your enjoyment, thanks to the people from each of the 17 cooperating countries, Retromedia Publishing’s team and the sponsors – all having one thing in common – a passion for horses racing in harness.
World Harness Racing is a book dedicated to the harness racing industry worldwide – its great people and its wonderful horses. The book concept was conceived by the publisher to tie in with the 2017 World Trotting Conference and the fifth leg of the World Driving Championship, both held in Prince Edward Island (PEI) Canada in the summer of 2017.
Each of the writers completed their chapters with great enthusiasm. Jerry McCabe wrote about his native Prince Edward Island, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, France and Russia. Melissa Keith from Nova Scotia, Canada wrote about the United States, South Africa, Austria and Canada. Trish Dooling from Newfoundland, Canada wrote about the World Trotting Conference/World Driving Championship (WTC/WDC), New Zealand, Australia and Spain. Shannon “Sugar” Doyle from Ontario, Canada wrote about Sweden, Norway, Germany, Finland and Denmark.
***The harness racing governing bodies of Canada (Standardbred Canada), United States (USTA), New Zealand, Australia, France, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Spain (partial), Italy, South Africa, United Kingdom (partial) and Russia have sent us photos, historical information and their selections for three driving legends/stars of harness racing of their respective countries. Each country will have its own mini-chapter in the book.
The book is 170 pages in length and is 6X9 inches (15.24cmX22.86cm).
