The Manawatu Harness Racing Club experience

We’re proud to offer a family friendly environment where you can kick back and enjoy a great spot of racing entertainment. Our facilities include a large green lawn that is great for kids to run around on, a grandstand, public lounge, sponsors lounge and space to park up in your vehicle and watch. We’ve got onsite catering and a bar but also invite you to bring along a chilly bin if you wish to sit outside.

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, we invite you to register at the Secretary's office to take a ride in the mobile vehicle alongside the starter. A field of pacers travelling at 40km less than a meter away from you sure gets the blood pumping - Tuesday's are the best days for this.
