Congratulations are needed for the two Pukekohe trainers who have horses qualified in the New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million race this weekend.
Waiuku’s Dean Wiles won the Gartshore 2YO in Tauranga over the weekend with the smart looking colt, Nova Swiss, which saw him qualify for highly anticipated race.
In the following race, Pukekohe’s Nigel Tiley chimed in with Brighton’s win, which saw him secure a position in Karaka 3YO Mile.
This will be the third horse Dean has had run since the race began over seven years ago, which has been called by fellow trainers an achievement that needs to be recognized. The Karaka Million has also been described as the pinnacle event for 2YO horse racing.
The Karaka Million will be held at Ellerslie Racecourse on Sunday, January 24.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
