Join Northpine for the Scottish heritage celebrations

The Northpine Waipu Cup is an integral part of the celebrations of the Scottish heritage of Waipu. Everything Scottish is celebrated in the festival of Waipu In Tartan and at the race meeting the kilts, scarves, whiskey, bagpipes and dancers are all part of the fun.

The $30,000 Northpine Waipu Cup over 1600 metres for open class gallopers is an ideal lead up race to the ITM Whangarei Gold Cup on 22 July over 2100m.
