Important date, venue and licence changes

A number of important date, venue and licence changes have been made for the remainder of the 2021-22 season.   The majority of these alterations are to accommodate the closure of Te Aroha and Ellerslie while extensive renovations are undertaken on both tracks.

A key change will see the Gr1 NZ Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes move from Te Aroha to Te Rapa on Saturday, 16 April 2022.  

There will also be movement of some jump races and venues while the new jumping-designated track at Te Aroha is renovated.  The changes have been recently approved by TAB NZ.

The full list of changes can be found here.

To confirm venues please check the NZTR dates calendar on the LOVERACING.NZ website which is updated regularly to reflect any changes.
