Horse racing in New Zealand

The most famous New Zealand Standardbred is the pacer Cardigan Bay. Stanley Dancer drove Cardigan Bay to $1 million in winnings in 1968, the first harness horse to surpass that milestone in American history. Dancer and Cardigan Bay appeared together on The Ed Sullivan Show.
