2018 KUMARA RACES CANCELLED..
Unfortunately due to ground/weather conditions the races on Saturday have been abandoned..
If you're looking for a taste of West Coast hospitality, this is a race day not to be missed!
The Kumara Racing Club hosts one of the most popular race meetings held in New Zealand when the Kumara Gold Nuggets are raced for at the once a year meeting in January. The feature race is the Kumara Gold Nuggets and as well as the prize money, the winning owners receive Gold Nuggets. Many ex-West Coasters return for this historic race day to meet with family and friends and enjoy the social atmosphere generated by the many tents and BBQ's. This is a family friendly event with children’s activities, "fashions in the field" and live bands including the famous Kokatahi Band who will provide great entertainment. There is local food to experience such as whitebait and venison.
