As a result of the keen interest of locals in harness racing, Mr C Archer convened a public meeting on 28 August 1946. At this meeting it was agreed to form the Rangiora Trotting Club (later renamed Rangiora Harness Racing Club).


The club held its first totalisator meeting in 1948.


Today the Rangiora Harness Racing Club (Inc) is one of New Zealand’s leading harness racing clubs and holds permits from the New Zealand Racing Board to run totalisator race meetings.


The meetings are held at Rangiora Raceway during the daytime, usually during the weekends.


The Annual General Meeting of the Rangiora Harness Racing Club will be at the Rangiora Racecourse on Wednesday 25th October 2023 at 7.30pm

The next race day will be sponsored by Bayleys Real Estate offices in North Canterbury.  We look forward to patrons attending this twilight race day on Friday 10th November.



This popular race day will be held on 17th December 2023.  It is a great way to wind up the year before Xmas.  Be sure to contact the Club early to avoid disappointment.  The Christmas at the Races page on this website will be updated with all the relevant details shortly. 

The Club continues to await a decision on their future after presenting their case to the HRNZ Board.

Please see the attached portion of the Sapere Report that refers to Rangiora Harness Racing Club, along with an overview of our intentions.
