Whangarei R.C.Clubs & Courses Index
The Club is based at Ruakaka Racecourse, adjacent to the Bream Bay coast at the Ruakaka beach. The Club has 10-12 meetings per season with its main racing period being mid-May to mid-October to take advantage of the well-draining sand profile during the wet winter season. The racing surface is a kikuyu turf with rye over-sown for the winter. The venue has a local horse population base of a small group of trainers who take advantage of the all year-round access to the beach and two training tracks. The dominant and very successful trainer with three-quarters of the horse population (about 65 horses) is Logan Racing who have a complementary stable in Singapore. The course is 90 minutes north of Auckland harbour bridge and 25 minutes south of Whangarei with several accommodation operators based in nearby One Tree Point, Ruakaka and Waipu.
