Where the fun begins

Inter club racing is for children who are 10 years and over and have completed and passed the three day race drivers course. Drivers course is held each year usually in January just after New Years. Once passed and turned age 10 you are eligible to race in Inter club racing. Drivers must also attend regular Club Nights to also be eligible to race.

We also run Fun Day races at our home track every 1-2 months for all drivers including those without Drivers License or are under 10 years old (Novice Drivers). These are held on safe ponies with older supervisors racing with them to help if needed.

Ponies regularly race at Alexandra Park From October to April. We race in 3 different distances of 800m, 600m 400m & 300m throughout our daylight savings racing season, all which have Cups at the distance as well the drivers can aim for. Dates are available on our Calendar Page. 

We also have grass track racing during the season

The biggest race in the sport drivers aim for is the Kidz Kartz NZ Trotting Cup in November, which is held each year in Christchurch and is open to the fastest ponies in the country, who all must qualify at the start of the season to take part. We also have some of our members represent Franklin in The Rising Star Driver Series which is held in Cambridge and Auckland over two race meetings towards the end of each season. .

If your eligible to drive at the races please keep you eye on the Race Calendar for up-coming races being confirmed.

We have club & loaned ponies that are available for our members who don't have their own pony to drive at the races. There is a $20 fee towards the travel and preparation of pony and gear for the races when provided.
