There could not be a better day to celebrate the start of the new season than joining us for the 'Coast to Coast' of horse racing - the Great Northern Steeplechase!

The Great Northern Steeplechase and the Meadow Fresh Great Northern Hurdle are two of the most prestigious jumping races on the New Zealand winter racing calendar. The Great Northern Steeplechase is a gruelling race in which the horses gallop over 6400m, jump 25 fences (which are five feet high!) and race three times up and over the famous Ellerslie Hill.

A range of hot and cold food and beverages will be available to purchase in public areas on course. If you are enjoying the outdoors bring some delectable nibbles (and unopened non-alcoholic drinks), set up your picnic table and don't forget the sunscreen!

All bars close shortly after the last race, except the Winning Post. All guests on course are welcomed to the Winning Post at this time.
