Waikato Racing Clubs discuss future options
Thoroughbred racing clubs in the Waikato met last week to resume discussions regarding how racing within the region might evolve and what shape any future structure might take.
The Thoroughbreds Waikato partnership, comprising Waikato RC, Cambridge JC and Waipa RC met last Thursday to recommence their deliberations which were put on hold for 12 months last year due to the impacts of COVID-19.
NZTR is working with the three clubs to facilitate their discussions, which will be shared progressively with respective club members and wider industry participants.
“As the New Zealand region with the greatest number of horses, owners and licence holders it is imperative that the Waikato region has a sustainable and revitalised racing presence. It is pleasing to see the clubs are working together to ensure this is the case. It was a productive and positive meeting.” NZTR chairman Cameron George said.
“We look forward to continuing to work alongside the clubs to allow them to build out their vision and plan for the future.”
