Woodville Pahiatua Racing Club

Listing Details

The name Woodville, and outstanding achievements in New Zealand horse racing are synonymous. Some attribute the magic of Woodville to the springy turf that flourishes in the shade of the Ruahine Ranges. Others say it's the mineral rich grass and some say it's the local water. Whatever it is, Woodville attracts the finest trainers and jockeys, who have prepared and raced notable winners throughout New Zealand and Australia.

The origins of the Woodville Pahiatua Racing Club began in 1883. Since then remarkable horses and horsemen and women have continued to add to Woodville’s long and illustrious racing heritage.
The club hosts between 6 and 7 race meetings during the season which runs from  November to April.
