TRAC is NZ’s first consortium of thoroughbred racing clubs, hosting 46 race meetings per year throughout the group. This includes 12 Saturday meetings of which 8 are Premier events, 5 of the very successful ‘Christmas At The Races’ meetings and 4 of the hugely popular ‘Summer Festival’ racedays.

TRAC is undergoing a process of upgrading its raceday facilities to attract a new generation of race goers and secure the long term loyalty of our existing customers.

TRAC is proud to host NZ’s richest race for Fillies & Mares, the Group One ‘Fiber Fresh NZ Thorughbred Breeders Stakes’ at Racing Te Aroha.

Each club has its own unique setting, from the stunning backdrop of Mount Te Aroha to the coastal atmosphere of Thames, to the thermal wonderland of Rotorua’s Arawa Park, TRAC has something to offer locals & visitors alike.

The TRAC clubs provide quality raceday amenities, as well as being used extensively outside of race days for functions, community events and meetings.
