Police say three fires at the Foxton Racecourse within a week are all linked.

Firefighters were called to the latest blaze just before 11pm on Wednesday night and arrived to find the stables well alight.

On Friday night extensive damage was caused to the grandstand and on Saturday night a stable building was burned down.

Police say at this stage they believe the fires are linked but is unclear why the racecourse has been targeted.
