The first Devonport Trotting Club was formed in 1911 and staged its first meeting on the Showgrounds on Thursday 22 June 1922.

Nora Creina won the first two races and Forest King won the next two after finishing third in the second race. The Club only held a few more meetings before being disbanded.

In 1927 the Club was reformed and held its first meeting on the Spreyton Racecourse on 6 June, after which it transferred back to the Showgrounds.
