Horse racing at Castlepoint dates back to the first days of European settlement in the district. Thomas Guthrie, the first white settler in the area, is said to have encouraged sporting evenings on the beach in front of his station with the station hands taking part in various athletic contests

Castlepoint is located only 50min east of Masterton and 2.5 hours from Wellington. Races are held on the strip of beach in front of the Castlepoint Store where plenty of refreshments and food can be purchased.

First race will start at 12:30pm (subject to tides).

Equalisator betting:
Tickets are purchased for $2 each. A $2 investment gives you a ticket with a letter printed on it. Immediately prior to each race a draw is made. Each letter draws a horse. Dividends are paid on winning tickets.
