Originally formed in 1920 as the Franklin Racing Club, Counties Racing Club is based at Pukekohe Park, and boasts an excellent training facility for local trainers.
A 15 metre wide, all-weather track has been a welcome addition to the training facility, which along with two grass surfaces and a plough track, and a dual lamp lighting system, allows trainers to consistently work their horses at a designated time. Along with these training facilities, Pukekohe Park also has a function centre and a motor sport track.
Throughout the season, Counties Racing Club holds up to 16 race meetings – the premier Counties Cup Day is held in November.
During the season we like to sponsor a race at one of Counties Racing Club’s race meetings, and then sponsor a prize for the annual Awards Night dinner, where horses, stable hands, jockeys, trainers and owners are recognised.
