Christmas at the Races 2018 on the 1st December is going to be a special year where the club will be celebrating 170 years racing at our track!

This year the Wanganui Jockey Club will be celebrating its 170th anniversary celebrations at Christmas at the races on Saturday 1st December. The club is the oldest in the country still racing at the original venue and commenced racing on 21 December 1848.

This event will feature not only the Cambridge Thoroughbred Lodge Wanganui Cup  but also a ‘yesteryear’ theme. There will be plenty of themed entertainment and activities too with Santa leading a ‘Time parade’, Damn Raucous Brass playing around the facilities, The Replicants rocking the main stage and maybe even a Clydesdale race!

The club encourages everyone to get into the swing of things and dress in period style or as a ‘blast from the past’!  Spot prizes for best dressed or you can also enter Fashion in the Field for great prizes.

This is the event of the year so come and celebrate 170 years of racing in the Rivercity.  Get in early and book now to be and be part of all the action: https://www.theraces.co.nz/event/wanganui-christmas-races-1
