The Woodville-Pahiatua Racing Club (Inc) races 4 times a year. There are two Spring meetings in October, Cup Day in January and an Autumn fixture in May. Woodville and Pahiatua were separate Racing Clubs until they amalgamated in 1986. We now have members from all over with the majority from Woodville, Pahiatua and Dannevirke. Woodville racecourse is nestled below the Tararua and Ruahine ranges with windmills standing as sentinels, which has made Woodville “The Windmill Capital of New Zealand” Feature meeting Woodville Cup Day – Saturday 6 January 2007 Normally held on the first Saturday after New Year. Many ex-locals who have come home for New Year attend, making it a great day for catching up with family and friends. Being summer, there is entertainment on course for the children with an old fashion lolly scramble, later in the day. The Cup is now in its third year of being over 1600m and this has been well received. The three year olds now have a race over 1400m, to prepare for the Wellington Stakes at Trentham a couple of weeks later.
