From sports ground to racetrack: All Whites player's million dollar chance

A star player on the field, New Zealand All Whites international Jarrod Smith will be hoping his DoubleTree by Hilton Karaka Million 2YO hope, On The Bubbles, will be just as smart on the track here tomorrow night.

Says Smith, “This will be the first time I’ve seen him race live on track, which is exciting, and not to mention it being a million-dollar race.”

“Dad (Ian Smith) loves his racing and has been involved in a few horses over the years and my grandfather on my mother’s side was involved in a Derby winner and a Sydney Cup winner.

“Mum and Dad will be there, and both my brothers and their partners, and friends will be coming along, so we should have a good crew to cheer him home.

"We want to take advantage and enjoy the occasion.”
