The Ashhurst-Pohangina Club played a vital role in the development of the Awapuni Racing Centre and this race day celebrates their involvement.  While racing was once held on the Ashhurst Domain before moving to Awapuni, we continue to recognise the valuable role of the Ashhurst-Pohangina Valley within the racing industry in the Manawatu. 

The Club would also like to acknowledge the continued support of Carters who are sponsoring the main race on the day for 20 consecutive years!
