NZ Thoroughbred Racing, in conjunction with the Northern Programming Committee chaired by John Craig, has approved the following programme for the race meetings prior to the end of July 2019.

The Northern Clubs' race meeting programmes have now been approved and are available on the LoveRacingNZ website in their race meeting calendar section. Below is the attached summary for the meetings at Ruakaka.

The Club's winter racing programme follows the recent trend with an opening mid-week programme of mainly maiden events followed by three Saturday meetings leading into the ITM Whangarei Gold Cup on Saturday July 13. The 2019/20 race meetings have not been approved by NZ Racing Board but the Club is confident that the draft dates of Sunday 11th and Saturday 31st August; Saturday 14 September and Tuesday 17 December will be formalised by NZRB.

There has been no changes to the prize money paid so mid-week prize will remain at $10,000 excepting where $11,000 for rating 72 and above. On Saturdays Opens are $35,000, R82 $30,000; R72 $25,000, R65 $22,500 and Saturday maidens are $10,000 the same as mid-week.
