D G  Jones  Banks Peninsula


Trotting Cup - Roll of Honour

The late Derek G Jones had an impact on the New Zealand harness racing industry, like no other.


Amongst the 1000 plus horses he trained to win, were such outstanding horses as “Soangetaha”, “Rewa Scott” , “Hands Down” and who could forget that wonderful mare “Blossom Lady”.


He had a close affinity with the Banks Peninsula Trotting Club being the President from 1994 to 1997.


Apart from his success as a trainer, driver and administrator Derek is remembered as much for his charismatic personality, humour and genuine interest in others.


Being the father of Peter Jones and grandfather of Mark Jones and Tim and Anthony Butt, his substantial impact on the industry is ensured for many generations to come.


Such was Derek’s contribution to harness racing in general and to this Club in particular, it is only fitting that his name be attached to the Club’s most prestigious race.
