Tauranga Racecourse is considered one of the finest provincial racing venues in New Zealand. Hosting approximately 12 thoroughbred racemeetings and one harness meeting each season, it is home to some of the largest racemeetings in the Waikato – Bay of Plenty region.
Racing Tauranga’s premier events include the Bayleys International Raceday in March and the Kiwifruit Cup Day in June. Other major events include the Interislander Summer Festival Tauranga Races on the 2nd of January each year and the hugely popular Christmas at the Races, where hospitality packages are booked out months in advance.
Tauranga Racecourse is home to a number of local trainers with on-site stabling, with others travelling to use the facilities six mornings a week.
Tauranga Racecourse is a sought-after function venue. Both raceday and non-raceday functions are held throughout the year in a number of venues including the Doncaster, Tokyo and Sir Tristram Lounges.
