  • Free Admission

Gather up your friends and family to come and enjoy a great day of racing at Ellerslie!

This year we're celebrating the 138th running of the Group I $200,000 Easter Handicap that was first run in 1874. The race is recognised as the premier mile on the New Zealand racing calendar and is the last Group I event of the New Zealand racing season. Having been won by some of the greatest metric milers in New Zealand (such as Kindergarten, Grey Way and Tudor Light) - make sure you're oncourse to witness which horse will add its name to the race's honour roll.

We're also supporting TrackWalk for CatWalk - a unique fundraising event where four men plan to run around all of New Zealand's 51 licensed thoroughbred racecourses (from Gore to Ruakaka) in six days - with the final leg taking place at Ellerslie on this RaceDay. This is all to raise funds for the CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust - a charity committed to raising funds to support the body of scientific opinion which says a cure for spinal cord injury will be found.
