Dagg out, horses in
Famous five: Five of the Crusaders horses will be on the sidelines at
McLean Park in Napier this Saturday night for the Crusaders v Chiefs
Injured Israel Dagg will not be
able to make it, but the famous
Crusaders horses will make
their first trip to the North
Island when they travel to
Napier for the super rugby clash
between the Crusaders and
Chiefs at McLean Park this
Five horses will make the trip
from the polo farm in Rangiora,
near Christchurch where they
are based, in a road transporter.
Horseman Mark Donald, who
has looked after and ridden the
Crusaders horses since the first
year of super rugby in 1996, said
the trip will take several days.
They can't really travel for
more than four hours at a time,
so we will need frequent
breaks,'' he said.
They need a lot of care. So we
are very careful to look after
them during the trip and to give
them lots of fluids and electroly-
tes in preparation for it.''
The animals are all former
polo horses and are making the
trip to Napier because the
match is considered a home
game for the Crusaders.
Award-winning New Zealand
band Midnight Youth will also
play before the match.
Midnight Youth's debut
album, The Brave Don't Run,
sold platinum in New Zealand
and picked up awards for Best
Rock Album and Best Group at
the 2009 New Zealand Music
The band, who are currently
in Los Angeles, will be playing
from just before 7pm.
Tickets for the Crusaders v
Chiefs match are available from
0800 224 224.
Tickets can also be bought in
person from the Hastings Opera
House, Pettigrew Green Arena

The series is one that attracts many top
national drivers and it was great to see so many
Hawke' Bay karters out there,'' said WPKA presi-
dent Wayne Zaloum.
Although fields were somewhat smaller than a
national event, the atmosphere was none the dif-
ferent,'' he said.
Junior Hawke's Bay drivers featured promi-
nently in the final round, including Zach Zaloum,
who blitzed the field in all four races in the Rotax
