Meet The Whale

Craig Thompson, also known as “The Whale”, professional harness racing analyst, "Boxseat" and "Whale Watch" host on trackside TV Channel 62, and a regular selector on radio trackside.

Craig has a long and successful history in harness racing as a form analyst. His largest success came when he selected 9 winners from 9 races all 1st pick at the Harness Jewels Cambridge 2008. One of his regular callers collected $245,000 from his selections that day.

"Punter turns life around with $245,000" (Sunday Star Times).

As a harness racing tipster, Craig says he is determined to help punters receive the most beneficial advice.

Craig’s business background started in 1995 after calling trials at Pukekohe and Auckland. He was constantly tipping winners to his friends. Shortly after, he was approached by the camera man at Pukekohe who suggested he started a tipping service, that 0900 90099 hotline has stood the test of time and remains NZ’s No.1 harness line.
