Welcome to Matamata Racing Club
As well as Matamata’s own racing schedule, the South Waikato Racing Club conducts its popular annual race meeting at the Matamata course.
The MRC also operates a highly successful training centre, with an average of more than 700 horses prepared on the course in any month of the year.
In recent years the MRC has undertaken an extensive programme to construct five on-site stable barns, with 152 horses now accommodated there.
Facilities are available for non-raceday activities, ranging from indoor functions such as weddings and funerals, as well as outdoor gatherings.
Fashions in the Field
The Joy of Race day Fashion
True race wear is unique.
It should be fashionable but feminine and elegant, and most importantly it is day wear, not evening wear. If you’d wear it to a evening event and it’s covered in bling it’s most likely the wrong choice.
The big days of racing call for hats, heels and handbags. Go all out and enjoy the fun of dressing up and stepping out with your friends for a day. Race wear can be fun, flirty and glamorous but it should still have an element of elegance for the big days and don’t forget to make the most of gorgeous matching accessories.
