Our History
History Thumbnail New Home Page

The first trotting races were held at Alexandra Park in the central Auckland suburb of Epsom in 1842

By 1884 this grew into an organised race programme run by the Epsom Trotting Club. In 1890, the Auckland Trotting Club, (ATC), was granted a lease to hold regular trotting races on the site. Since the 1950’s Aucklanders and visitors to the region have been enjoying Friday Night Trots under lights which have established Alexandra Park Raceway as an Auckland Institution.
