How to become a member of Auckland Thoroughbred Racing

To become a Member, you must first complete a Membership Application Form and be proposed and then seconded by a current member of the Club.


If you do not know any Club members - that's okay!  To find out how to get around that, or to have any questions answered, please contact our membership secretary via or by calling 09 524 4069.

Your application will then be presented before the Board of Directors for approval within a month of the Club receiving it.

On approval of your application, if payment was not presented with your application, you will be sent a subscription notice detailing fees payable.


Don't forget!


Your Membership period runs during the racing season (1 August to 31 July), not the calendar year from the month you join.  You can join at any time of the season, but will get the most out of your membership the sooner you apply.
