    OUTSTANDING pacer Tiger Tara has retained his position as the Gallagher New South Wales Horse of the Year.

    A unanimous choice for the prestigious title, Tiger Tara was bestowed the honour during this evening’s Harness Racing New South Wales Awards Night.

    Winner of the 2018 award, the Kevin Pizzuto-trained stallion successfully defended the throne thanks to his remarkable season, which included victories in the Tabcorp Inter Dominion and the A G Hunter and Victoria Cups for a bankroll of $865,500.

    Tiger Tara, which finished the term as Grand Circuit champion, was also recently declared the Australian Horse of the Year.

    Another highlight of the function was the Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation responsible for Racing, the Hon Kevin Anderson, presenting Club Menangle Chairman Ray Sharman with Australia’s highest harness racing award – the JP Stratton Award.

    Sharman’s dedication to the industry includes 26 years of service on that board.

    Harness Racing NSW also presented awards for several categories in front of a capacity crowd, hosted by Mark McNamara.
