Welcome to the Manning Valley Race Club and the Winning Post Function Centre. We are a premier horse racing track and function centre catering for weddings, conferences, private functions or other special events.

The Manning Valley Race Club is one of New South Wales most picturesque tracks and is only minutes from the Taree city centre on the northern side of town.

Whether it’s a social day at the races with friends, special celebration occasion, hosting company staff or clients, a day at Taree races is the ideal opportunity to enjoy the fun and excitement of thoroughbred horse racing in the modern facilities which are available at the track.

If you are looking for a venue for your next ‘special event’ such as a business meeting, trade display or conference, wedding or other special occasion celebration, the Winning Post Function Centre can cater up to 300 people and is the ideal venue for your next special event. We also have two other function areas:
