The Harness Racing New South Wales Off The Track series is to promote Standardbred's as Pleasure Horses upon their retirement from their traditional role of Harness Racing. This will be the Fourth Series run in New South Wales and focuses on the transition made from Harness Racing into show horse for Standardbreds.

Harness Racing New South Wales is the governing body for Harness Racing in New South Wales and are committed to the welfare of our Standardbred horses, before, during and after their racing life.  We are extremely excited to continue promoting this series  with Harness Racing New South Wales  promoting the breed in the broader equestrian community.

The Standardbred Pleasure and Performance Horse Association of New South Wales are honored to have a close working relationship with Harness Racing New South Wales for numerous projects since 2016 promoting Life After Racing, including the Harness Racing New South Wales Off The Track Series.
