My goal in Harness Racing was always to be a Trainer and operate my own stables.
To achieve this I had to start at the bottom and get the experience so that I knew what each job within the stables required of you. I achieved this by working with the likes of Michael and James Stormont as well as Bunty Hughes and Peter Simpson, and then with Steven Reid, where I also competed as a junior driver. I later trained on my own for a short while before being lured back to the Reid barn, where after four years Benny shifted south to be the stable's southern foreman and ultimately ending up taking over the Robert Famularo’s team at Dancingonmoonlight as his No 1 trainer.
The doors opened for Benny when he showed he could get results training horse the likes of Monkey King, Carabella, Baileys Dream, Tennis Ball, Power Of Tara, Ellmer Hanover, Dalton Bromac plus others….
Progression has now resulted in buying a property and going full circle to operating Benny Hill Racing.
Benny Hill Racing offers full training facilities at 1139 Two Chain Road, Swannanoa near Rangiora. Visits by owners and prospective owners are available by prior arrangements by contacting Benny.
