Manawatu Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners’ Association

The Manawatu Branch of the Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners’ Association covers Manawatu, Kapiti Coast, Wellington and Wairarapa. Our Committee meets every month and our meetings are also attended by committee members of the Central Districts Breeders’ Association.

The Association has contributed strongly over recent years and made submissions on all of the recent important national issues. Through our Secretary, Allan Fenwick, we are in excellent communication with the National Federation and regularly express our views and suggestions to the national body.

The current racing season is the fourth where we have conducted a Points Series for the joint memberships of our Association and the Central District Breeders’ Association. This series has proved popular and is based on a format initially introduced by the Central South Island Association.

For three years we enjoyed the support and sponsorship of Kamada Park (agistment and pre-training) for the Points Series. The 2020/21 Season Points Series was won by Deerfield, owned by Tony Bambry, Judith Bambry, Samantha Finnegan & Chrissy Bambry (trained by Chrissy Bambry). Congratulations!

For the 2021-2022 season, we are now sponsored by Majestic Horse Floats.
