The Opunake Racing Club based in Coastal Taranaki was established in 1886 and races twice a year in July (at Hawera) and December (at Pukekura Raceway at New Plymouth). Coastal Taranaki has a high number of Irish descendants and the Club is Irish based. The Club has a strong community support, which is based on the dairy farmers and agricultural support industries. With the Irish and the farming background the club is an extremely social and hospitable club. Committee members are recognized as they wear a green tie with a shamrock on it. In past years the club held one meeting per year and this was held on St Patrick’s Day. The club has 2 meetings a year with our Cup Day in July at Hawera Racecourse and lower class raceday being Cockies Christmas Shout meeting in December at New Plymouth. Trophies are provided for all winning owners and trainers for each race the club runs.
