Gallops need to jump some hurdles

The Marlborough Racing Club has vowed to host thoroughbred racing in its 100th year at Waterlea in 2020 and beyond at a meeting with New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing (NZTR) in Blenheim last Thursday. The NZTR venue plan, which is currently up for consultation, has suggested the Marlborough Racing Club (gallops) would not be granted licences to hold its two Autumn race days from next season

- its centenary year. The plan cites a lack of thoroughbred horses in Marlborough, and the reliance on central New Zealand trainers to fill the fields as the main reasons for the decision. Under the proposed changes, the Autumn meeting which will be held on April 26 and 28 this year, could be moved to Christchurch’s Riccarton Park fulltime from next year. Continued on page 2.

Members of the Marlborough Racing Club and Marlborough Harness Club, Mike Rangi, Sue Grainger, Petrina Shutkowski and John O’Brien, discuss the strengths of the Waterlea Racecourse. Unlike the Marlborough Racing Club, Marlborough Harness have been allocated dates for 2020.
