IT’S the start of the New Year and that can mean only one thing!
The countdown to one of this region’s major sporting drawcards is well and truly on.
The Hamilton Harness Racing Club will take centre stage on Sunday, January 12, when it showcases its 2014 Matthews Petroleum Hamilton Pacing Cup program.

Another of the many race day highlights will feature the running of the Alexandra House Border Cup.
