AGM 2019

Audited Performance Report


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 "home" meetings are held at Rangiora Raceway during the daytime, usually during the weekends, whilst the meetings held at Addington are usually held under lights on Thursday or Friday evenings.

The Rangiora Harness Racing Club Committee is committed to ensuring that the members annual subscription is great value and that the benifits members receive are also great value.


The support of members is greatly valued and appreciated by the committee.  As a result, the Committee are constantly looking for opportunities to increase and improve the benefits offered to its members.


  • The following are some of the benefits members can expect to enjoy free admission to all Rangiora Harness Racing Club race meetings at Rangiora and Addington.

  • Free "members only" reserved parking at Rangiora Raceway.

  • Members only complimentary drink in the Birdcage Bar at Rangiora Raceway.

  • Complimentary drinks and brunch at the Annual General Meeting.

  • Regular newsletters throughout the year.

  • Subsidised "members only" offers when opportunities arise.

  • Rangiora Harness Racing Club membership costs just $25 per year, or $80 for 5 years.  If you would like to become a financial member please download a membership application form here.

What a wonderful day it was for our Pink Ribbon High Tea at the races on Sunday. 

I am proud to say we raised an amazing total of $1,850.50 for the Breast Cancer Foundation !! 

There were some wonderful prizes just for buying a ticket, including a diamond Necklace from Pascoes The Jewellers and a Limousine ride to the races thanks to Airpark Limousines

A big thanks to all those who came and to all the sponsors, the wonderful photos by Display , and our awesome hostess Jess Smith, without you all we could not have pulled it off :)
