Cambridge - Waikato Bay of Plenty Thursday 15 August



Friday Nights Under The Lights is a fusion of harness racing action, social interaction, exciting light displays, inspired music and culinary adventure. 

Held at Cambridge Raceway over seven Fridays, Friday Nights Under The Lights is the perfect event to take after work drinks to the next level or commit to a regular night out with your besties. 

Feel the rush of the harness racing action, reach out and network, indulge in the food truck-style cuisine, witness the bright lights, catch up with your mates, make new friends, listen to the music, dance the night away and repeat. 

It's light therapy for your senses!

Hello Everyone,

**Inaugural $20K Dunstan Horse Feeds Met Mega Series – Commences this Friday**

Starting this Friday and finishing Friday 25 October, this series looks to be a great lead into the Christchurch Casino NZ Trotting Cup Day on Tuesday 12 November. The Dunstan Horse Feeds Met Mega Series allows for horses of all ages, ratings, sex and gaits to be eligible and on a level playing field. It is hoped to bring a competitive nature between all who will be chasing the total prize money of the series.

The eleven meetings that the $20k Dunstan Horse Feeds Met Mega Series covers will have allocated points as per performance. At the end of the series the $20k prize pool will be divided between the top 5 points scorers.

With this series, Dunstan Horse Feeds and Addington Raceway are looking to reward owners for their loyalty and competitiveness at Addington Raceway. Using this points system, it is designed that Non-Win horses have the same opportunity to take out the prizes as the horses whom are in Free-For-All grade.  Along with this, trotters have the equal opportunities that the pacers have of taking a prize home.
