TRAC Racing Thames, located at the Thames racecourse only a few kilometres south of the town centre, is a great holiday destination for the whole family.
With two race meetings (one gallops and one harness) in early January, a day out at the Thames races has become a ‘must do’ event for locals and visitors alike in the summer holidays.
The first event is on “Lockwood-Coast Homes Thames Cup Day” which is also a part of the family friendly “Interislander Summer Festival” series. Demand for space has grown steadily over the years with large crowds enjoying thrilling holiday racing both in the popular “Infield” and on the Grandstand side of the track.
There is something for all tastes from the trackside Mini-Marquees including catering & hospitality to the self catering “Car Boot Party Spots” in the “Infield.” The Thames Jockey Club always ensures there is plenty of high quality, locally sourced food options available as well as a variety of exciting free children’s entertainment for the little ones.
If you’re planning a holiday in the Coromandel/Eastern Waikato region this summer, then be sure to join the family friendly fun of a day at the races with TRAC Racing Thames.
