Former pony driver Aaron Bain is a dedicated harness racing enthusiast who is currently in Year 11 at Xavier High School. 


Aaron likes to keep himself busy so before school and on weekends he helps out local trainer and vet Toby Ryan, and his father Peter.  With only limited drives he landed his first winner with the family horse Carnival Rose at Kapunda on 15 February 2009, after drawing Barrier 9 he settled back in the field before coming home strongly to win by 4m ahead of Jazzstar and Humboldt.


He has a passion for researching horses and their bloodlines and a talent behind the microphone which he has been practicing since he was only 2.  For a few years now at the Gawler Harness Racing Club, he has introduced horses coming onto the track, calling trials and at the recent Gawler Cup Meeting held at Globe Derby Park Aaron put his skills to interviewing winning drivers on their return to scale which contributed to the Gawler meeting being conducted in a very professional matter.


With Aaron’s dedication and devotion to harness racing there is no doubt that he will be involved in the sport for a very long time and be a valued member of the industry.  We wish him all the best for whatever path he chooses.
