Harness racing is a type of horse racing that usually involves a certain type of horse pulling a cart, which is often called a sulky or chariot, depending on where the race is taking place.

In addition, sometimes a human is occupying the sulky/chariot.

Harness racing is conducted on a dirt track, as grass would make the operation of a sulky/chariot impossible, especially if there were wet conditions.

Horses that race in harness racing don't gallup - instead, they trot, which is why these horses are sometimes called trotters. Standardbred horses, French Trotters and Russian Trotters are often used in harness racing, though the type of horse depends upon where the race is being conducted.


The biggest harness racing event in the world is the Prix d'Amerique in Paris, which is conducted at the Vincennes hippodrome.

The purse for the race usually tops 1 million Euros, making it the premier harness racing event in the world.

In North America, some of the biggest harness racing events include the Hambletonian, the Little Brown Jug and the Breeders Crown series.

In Canada, some of the biggest events include the Gold Cup and Saucer and the Canadian Pacing Derby, just to name a few.

The biggest events in New Zealand and Australia include the Miracle Mile Pace, the Victoria Cup and the Australian Pacing Championship, just to name a few.

In Europe, the aforementioned Prix d'Amerique is the biggest race, while the Elitloppet and Gran Premio Lotteria di Agnano are also some prominent race.


Some harness races utilize a motorized starting gate, while others use the standing start.

Rules for harness racing can vary dramatically depending on the region where the race is taking place.


The two most common types of bets in harness racing are the win bet and the show bet.

With the win bet, you are simply betting on which horse will finish in first place in the race.

If they win, you win. If they lose, you lose.

So, for instance, let's say that you want to bet on "Napoleon" to win the race, and their odds are listed at 4.50.

If Napoleon wins the race, you would win the amount of your wager multiplied by 4.50, less the amount of your wager.

With the show bet, you are betting that your chosen horse will finish in the top 2.

So, if you bet on "Napoleon" to show and he finishes in the top 2, you'd win your wager, even if Napoleon didn't win the race.
