The Inter Dominion is a harness racing competition that has been contested since 1936 in Australia and New Zealand. The host of the series is rotated between the six harness racing states of Australia and the North and South Islands of New Zealand. The rotation of the Championships is fixed annually at a meeting of the Council. It is fixed five years in advance. It is held in New Zealand once in each four years. [1]

The series is held over a two week period with three heats held in the first week, over a sprint distance (1,600m - 1,900m), a middle distance (2,100m - 2,300m) and a staying distance (over 2,400m). The scheduling of the distances is usually at the discretion of the host club. At each round of heats there are 3 races to accommodate the number of horses in the series. The final and consolation are held usually around a week after the final round of heats. The usual distance is a longer distance in excess of 2400 metres. [2]

Blacks A Fake made history in 2010, by winning his fourth Inter Dominion title by becoming the only horse to win four Inter Dominion races.[3]
