About Us

History of the Wanganui Jockey Club 1848 - current

The Wanganui Jockey Club is the oldest surviving New Zealand club still racing at the original  venue. During October 1998, the club celebrated its 150th jubilee. A book tracing the history of the club was written by L Sole.

A tragic fire in 1997 meant the old grandstand was burnt to the ground, however out of the ashes has risen the Function Centre and its purpose built rooms suitable for modern meeting and function needs.
