The first race meeting at Addington was held on Monday 6 November 1899. The racecourse was then approximately 36 acres and was leased from the Charitable Aid Board. It wasn’t until 1980 that the lease was purchased by the New Zealand Metropolitan Trotting Club Inc. (NZMTC) and since then land area has grown to what is now 65 acres (26.44 hectares) owned by the Club.
These days the NZMTC conducts 39 race meetings a season at Addington with two meetings held by guest clubs – Cheviot (March) and Timaru (April) Clubs. Nine of the meetings staged by the NZMTC are Premier Meetings held throughout February, March, April, May, October and November (Cup and Show Day).
