Exciting New Trackside Programme

New show highlights the people behind the racing industry | NZ Racing News

The New Zealand thoroughbred racing industry has more than 34,000 participants, employs over 9,500 people and contributes around $1.1 billion dollars to the New Zealand economy annually.

It's an industry that doesn't stop with the horses requiring constant
care, resulting in early mornings, late nights, busy weekends and few
holidays for the hard working and passionate people behind the scenes.

Beyond The Winning Post is a magazine docuseries that
explores the varied participants within the racing industry and the
motivation behind their involvement.

In the eight-part series, host Emily Bosson mucks in with a range of
characters as they go about their everyday tasks and learns more about
them and why they do what they do.

Beyond The Winning Post is funded by the same stable of sponsors that commissioned the return of Weigh In on Trackside
earlier this year - put together by Te Akau Racing's David Ellis
CNZMand it is produced by Picket Fence Marketing and Media's Tara

“We were asked to produce a show that would inspire those currently
involved in the racing industry, reward industry participants who have
achieved recent success and share with a wider audience why the racing
industry is important to so many people,” Hughes said.  

“Beyond The Winning Post does just that, telling the participants' stories and exploring the motivation behind their industry involvement.”

Episode One of Beyond The Winning Post airs on Trackside 1
on Sunday December 20 at 9am. Each 30-minute episode includes three
stories which will also be released individually online via the Beyond
The Winning Post YouTube and social media accounts.

A mainstream broadcast partner is also being sought.

In addition to the eight-episode series the team behind Beyond The
Winning Post will also be releasing a 1 hour Karaka 2021 yearling sale
