Dear BLANGSTED,
Please try to understand the difference between trotting and pacing! Read the reference! I do object against the "harness racing" translation. "Harness racing" includes both trotting and pacing. "Travsport" does not! Both trotters and pacers are raced in the US. Only trotters are raced in Europe.
