Welcome to Derek Balle Racing Stables

We are a professional standardbred training operation situated in Pukekohe, New Zealand. Derek has been successfully training and driving professionally in New Zealand, Australia and USA for over 28 years. Derek is dedicated, honest, patient and his expertise in attainting the absolute best from a racehorse is unparalleled.

Set on 12 acres adjacent to the Franklin Park Training Centre, we have a large stable complex with both open and boxed quarters to suit all horse requirements.

Three training tracks are utilised for all stages of a horse’s preparation. We are located close to a straight line surf beach where we regularly work our horses, providing the ultimate in training grounds; a naturally freshly groomed sand surface each day. In warmer months, an equine swimming facility is also used as an alternative fitness regime.

Training, breaking in or pre training arrangements are available for both trotters and pacers. Derek is a specialist in breaking in horses that require extra attention and patience.
