Welcome to Mark Jones Harness Racing Stables
Mark Jones continues to do the best for his owners with track and beach training at his Canterbury bases, while he also offers opportunities at Menangle, New South Wales, for the right horses.
He concluded the 2017-18 season with another good domestic run, racking up 45 wins to extend his NZ tally to 521 winners of over $5.2 million.
Its a rebuilding phase this term with earlier flag-bearers, Delightful Memphis and Whittaker, now in America, and top mare Rocker Band in the twilight of her race career in New South Wales. Another smart winner in The Bus will continue to race in Australia this season.
Mark earlier prepared NZ trot star Master Lavros, the talented but injury-plagued, dual-gaited performer Saveapatrol, and former star age group trotter Shezoneoftheboyz.
He’s also had many other nice horses through the barn, including big Australian winner Cruz Bromac (p3, 1:51.6, 1:50.7) and multiple Australian Oaks winning filly, Itz Nosurprisesthere, winner of the 2013 NSW, Queensland and Tasmanian Oaks.
After conquering the world stage as a driver in 2003, Mark Jones has applied the same determination and skills to reach the top as a trainer.
