WHO WE ARE

Diamond Racing is very much a family business with son John being stable foreman at Woodened Beach, and the main stable driver. John’s wife Jenna is also an integral part of the Woodend Beach operation as is her father Craig Edmonds – Craig is especially skilled with our trotters. Brother-in-law Tim Williams also regularly drives for Diamond Racing and John’s son Jacob has recently joined the team and obtained his Trials Driver license, driving a winner on his first day driving at the trials. RJ divides his time between our Woodend Beach stable and our satellite stable in Auckland. When RJ is at the Woodend Beach stable, the Auckland base is competently run by stable foreman Rhys Fensom.
