Otago Racing Club
Otago's Premier Racing Club. More than just a racecourse!
Wingatui Racecourse is the home of the Otago Racing Club and the Wingatui Function Centre. The Otago Racing Club moved to Wingatui in the community of Mosgiel in 1899 and has been a proud participant and supporter of thoroughbred racing in Otago.
The Otago Racing Club now hosts fifteen race days each year, with fourteen of these at the Wingatui course and its now-famous event in Cromwell, Central Otago each November. In addition, Wingatui is home to the crowd-pleasing Melbourne Cup Day races.
The success of the venue has assisted the development of a strong thoroughbred breeding and training community around the track, further consolidating Wingatui as a premium racing destination.
The facility also now houses the Wingatui Function Centre which combines the open pristine venue with a desirable facility for weddings, meetings, and other occasions, serviced by professionals to make your event a success.
We look forward to welcoming you to the races or your next event at Wingatui.
Our sponsors are an integral part of Otago Racing Club, their support is crucial in the running of our events. We would like to thank our current season's sponsors and welcome any parties who are interested in a future partnership with us.
