About Us

The largest and busiest club in the country, the Christchurch Club's base (shared with Harness Racing) at Addington Raceway is an excellent facility for participants and enthusiasts alike and plays host to a number of the Code's glamour events such as the New Zealand Cup, the New Zealand Oaks, the New Zealand Stayers Cup, the Kingston Cup and the South Island Championship.  It is often said it takes a 'strong dog' to win at Addington. The club conducts nearly 200 race meetings each season racing predominantly on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
