New Zealand's richest, biggest and most glamorous week of racing kicks off with TV3 Derby Day - a prestigious day of horse racing, fashion, corporate hospitality and entertainment.

Place your bets early for New Zealand's premier race - the Group I $750,000 TV3 New Zealand Derby. That's joined by nine other thrilling races including the Group III $100,000 Darley Plate, the $40,000 Nathan's Memorial and the $40,000 Lindsay Mile.

Catch a glimpse of New Zealand's most fashionable racegoers and see who wins the ultimate prize in the national fashions in the field final, Prix de Fashion (or even enter yourself!).

For the ultimate Auckland Cup Week foodie experience the team at Taste of Auckland are bringing a gourmet taste sensation to Ellerslie! New for 2013 the Gourmet Village is open to everyone and will feature the award-winning restaurant The Grove serving signature dishes and a number of tastes exclusively designed for Auckland Cup Week.

New for 2013, Picnics & Ponies is a great family area featuring New Zealand’s longest BBQ and free children's entertainment including pony rides, Kids Go Racing, Popsicle Planet, bouncy castles, swingball and giant games – with space to bring your own picnic (no BYO alcohol). Create some new family traditions at Ellerslie during Auckland Cup Week!

Do you think you have what it takes to win $10,000? Enter our Ellerslie Punter of the Year competition! See more details here.

When it comes time to leave, Ellerslie is working in association with Auckland Transport to make the trip home easy. Buses will leave the racecourse approx. every 30 minutes after the last race to inner city locations (Ponsonby, Viaduct and Parnell) for a special price of $5 per person!

Enjoy a multitude of hospitality options - from a day of premium dining in the Chairman's Club, to a seat next to the catwalk in the Fashion Village or a table in the most sought-after location oncourse, Cuvée.
