Australian Pacing Gold
Grand Circuit and Trotting Masters
History
   
The Australian Pacers Grand Circuit began in 1977 and was designed to be the showpiece of the Australian Harness Racing Industry with horses competing from every State within Australia. 

In 1992 New Zealand was admitted and the Circuit was renamed the Australasian Grand Circuit.


The best horses available are brought together to race for very attractive prizemoney. 

With the associated opportunities for promotion and marketing, this benefits both owners and harness racing clubs as well as the industry overall. 

In its first season in 1977, total stakemoney for the eight races forming the Circuit was $554,020. 

The Trotters Grand Circuit commenced in 1999.

In 2012, the Grand Circuit was revamped with the Trotters competing in a stand alone branded series, Trotting Masters.


Today total stakemoney has risen to a projected $3.65 million for the Pacers Grand Circuit Season and $1 million for the Trotting Masters in 2018/2019.

Points are awarded during the Circuit, 100 points for a win, 60 points for second, 40 points for third, and so on, to last placing.

The horse with the greatest number of points is crowned Australian Pacing Gold Grand Circuit Champion and Australian Pacing Gold Trotting Masters Champion.
