Club

Matamata RC

The Matamata Racing Club, located at the Matamata racecourse two kilometres south of the eastern Waikato township of Matamata, is a centre of racing and training excellence.
Twelve race meetings per season, including a Premier fixture in February and an October Feature raceday, are staged by the Matamata Racing Club on the left-handed track.
The MRC also operates a busy and very successful training centre, with an average of more than 700 horses prepared on the course in any month of the year. In recent years the MRC has undertaken an extensive programme to construct four on-site stable barns, with 140 horses now accommodated there.
As well as Matamata's own schedule, the South Waikato Racing Club conducts its popular autumn race meeting at the Matamata course.

Membership: Annual subscription $45.00 includes reciprocal rights with Racing Te Aroha, Racing Rotorua, Racing Taupo and Racing Thames
