False Step was a New Zealand standardbred racehorse. He is notable in that he won three NZ Trotting Cup races, the richest harness race, and sometimes the richest horse race in New Zealand. [1] False Step is one of two horses to win the NZ Trotting Cup three times, the other being Indianapolis.

False Step was also taken to the United States in 1960 by his trainer and reinsman Cecil Devine, who had driven him to victory three times in the New Zealand Cup. The horse scored success in the International Series at Yonkers Raceway, and also beat the acknowledged American champion of the time, Adios Butler. [2]
