Waikato/Bay of Plenty

Welcome to …

Waikato & Bay of Plenty Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners’ Association

Our branch is active within the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions. We are planning to sponsor a race in the Waikato/BOP region to $5,000 where the owners of the first five horses across the line each receive $1,000 in their bank account, no ticket clipping. The potential racecourse venue for this event is Te Aroha and we are looking to boost a low stakes race. This will be locked down before the end of October 2020.

Waikato/BOP is undertaking a Survey of racing clubs in the region to identify:

  1. What is each club’s Policy for Owners?
  2. How much of the funds gained from sponsorship of races in the 2019/2020 season was given to owners through stakes?
  3. What is each club’s Policy for Horse Welfare?

When we hear back from the clubs we will post the results on this website. If a club doesn’t respond, we will take it that they have no policies for Owners or Horse Welfare, or that there is no sponsorship money directed to owners.

We look forward to welcoming new members to our region!
