Oamaru J.C.

The Club races three times a year, in May, June and July. It prides itself on being able to offer good winter going and its central South Island location means it’s supported by trainers from far and wide. The Club is going through one of the greatest renaissances in the Gallop South region. Following a number of years of poor community support and low attendances, the Oamaru Racecourse is being nursed back to its former glory by a dedicated team, so much so that Oamaru Cup Day achieved the biggest on-course turnover of any rival winter racing club on the eastern side of the South Island.
