The Club is based in Reefton and races once a year as the middle day of the popular three day January West Coast circuit. The track has a circumference of 1140 metres and a straight of 140 metres which makes it the smallest course in New Zealand for galloping meetings. Formed in July 1877, the Club held its first meetings at Fern Flat, Waitaha, and shifted to its present course in 1879. The original grandstand was built in 1913. In 1967 the Club purchased the former Monteith's Brewery property, which became the main stabling yards and car park. In 1982 a sports complex was built at the course.
