Pembrook Playboy for the Dunstan Slot

Pembrook Playboy for the Dunstan Slot

New Zealand's Racing first "Slot" race based around the hugely successful Everest concept has been confirmed for Cambridge in April, but with a significant stake increase that will instantly make it the richest harness race in New Zealand.

The $900,000 invitation-only race on April 14 will be simply called 'The Race'. Harness Racing New Zealand programmed the race as part of their radical overhaul of the New Zealand calendar for 2022 and the idea has now been picked up by the Waikato-Bay of Plenty Harness Racing Club. 

In support of the New Zealand Harness Racing Industry, Dunstan Horsefeeds has jumped on board with a slot, and we are excited to announce that 'Pembrook Playboy', trained and driven by Nathan Williamson, will be the chosen runner to run in the Dunstan colours. 

Known for his devastating sprint, Pembrook Playboy was seen by many to be peaking at the right time for the New Zealand Cup.  He finished third behind Self Assured and Classie Brigade in the Ashburton Flying Stakes,  second in the Canterbury Classic behind South Coast Arden, and fourth in the Hannon Memorial.

“He is certainly a very good horse and if he’s hiccup-free he can match it with the best of them,” says Williamson.

Dunstan is proud to be supporting the Industry with this venture, and we are looking forward to following 'Pembrook Playboy' as he campaigns towards 'The Race' on April 14.
