It’s an exciting time of the year.
The Hastings Spring Racing Carnival gets underway on September 1 and will herald the first Group 1 event of the season, the Tarzino Trophy, in New Zealand and usher in another new season of racing memories.
The announcement of the Messara racing report has sparked much talk about the future of New Zealand racing and will bring about overdue change including the all-weather tracks.
Here at RaceCafe we are also undergoing major developments.
These include a focus on bringing you up-to-date and breaking racing news from across New Zealand and overseas.
Our newly appointed Editor is five-times New Zealand Racing Journalist of the Year Phillip Quay who is renowned for delivering stories as they happen.
He will be supported by other experienced racing writers at a time when the newspaper industry has reduced its racing coverage to almost zero.
Our popular racing forums will continue to be a big part of the RaceCafe offering and we have plans to expand these as well.
Welcome aboard. Your input will be welcome at all times.
