Horse Racing in Hawke’s Bay is steeped in history and success, with horses and participants rated among the very best.

Racing itself has been staged at the Hastings racecourse since 1866 and since that time it has been a major contributor and stimulant to the local economy.

Economic impact reports measure the value added to the local economy at over $30m annually, with the equivalent of 320 full time employment positions sustained by the thoroughbred industry.

The Board of Hawke’s Bay Racing has a vision  which is pure and simple, and seeks to nurture the foundations that have existed for nearly 150 years.
