With confirmation of the 2017/18 racing calendar the WJC would like to make the following statement:
The Wanganui Jockey Club is happy to announce that the NZ Racing Board Dates Committee has seen the light and confirmed that the iconic Guineas/Fillies feature raceday will be retained as a Saturday fixture. The NZRB had originally indicated a move to a Sunday date as part of their new initiative of ‘Optimising the Racing calendar’ for the 2017/18 season.
The meeting will now be held on Saturday 9 September and will feature the HS Dyke Wanganui Guineas and the O’Leary Fillies Stakes both with stakes of $50k. The day may also include the running of the Foxton Cup which is still to be confirmed so will be a fantastic day of racing.
The club would like to acknowledge all of the support provided by those that contributed submissions in retaining this fixture, and thank sponsors, members, stakeholders, the NZ Trainers Association and Wanganui Motors.
