Stride Racing Club is about experiencing the thrill and excitement of horse racing while also taking you into the heart of the industry—opening the gates to the magical world of the thoroughbred. We’ll always have something for you to look forward to, from a day at the races to a VIP experience being personally toured around our most recognised horse studs. Stride Racing Club is committed to providing you with experiences you’ll remember forever.

Stride Racing Club tours

All our SRC members will be personally invited to tour the majestic grounds of our stud farm partners. Learn about how they breed champions, meet some of the most famous stallions in the world and chat with the team who care and raise these beautiful animals. Additional spaces can be booked for friends or family.

Every January, New Zealand Bloodstock showcases and puts under the hammer the best thoroughbreds NZ breeders have to offer. As a SRC Member you will go behind-the-scenes, touring the sales complex, meeting the big players and experiencing the buzz of NZ’s largest thoroughbred sale.

Our trainers are some of the best in the business. Enjoy a tour of the stables, learn what makes them tick and best of all, catch up with your horses.
