The New Zealand Trotting Cup is underway in Christchurch at Addington Raceway. 

Commentator Matt Richens told Radio Sport Breakfast today is a big day for Christchurch.

"This is kind of our Thanksgiving, it's the start of our holiday period. The weather is always good. It's kind of  chance to go out and start celebrating ...and start winding down for Christmas." 

He said it's also a day for the horse racing industry to show off and celebrate. 

"It's days like this that keep this industry going. This is their party. This is their way of showing the industry off."

"This is the day to show everyone how good we are and to have a big party."
