Matamata Leaving TRAC To Operate Independently
Matamata Racing Club announced it will break away from the TRAC group of racing clubs at the end of the season & operate independently (after more than a decade under the TRAC umbrella). The club had an independent review undertaken which suggested TRAC's existing business model was "unsustainable'". The Thoroughbred Racing Action Consortium was formed in 1999 & under its current structure has comprised the Matamata, Tauranga, Rotorua, Te Aroha, Taupo, Thames & Rotorua-Bay Of Plenty Hunt clubs.
