Barfoot & Thompson Twilight Summer Series

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Wed 11 Feb ’15, 3:30pm


Ellerslie Racecourse, 80 Ascot Ave, Remuera


All Ages

Live it up at the Twilight races!

Experience the thrill and excitement of the races at this fast paced event with six races across three hours, then watch the sun go down as you party into the night.

Twilight racing gives you access to behind the scenes action as we move the post-race jockey weigh-in outdoors! To add to the atmosphere of Twilight racing, the jockey’s riding on the day pick their ultimate victory song. The winning jockey’s song is played across course after their win as they head back to the scales for their weigh-in.

With an entertainment line-up to match the on track action, Barfoot & Thompson Twilight Summer Series is the only event of its kind – a must do on the Auckland social calendar!

All bars close shortly after the last race, except Cuvee and the Winning Post. All guests on course are welcome to join in the fun with our resident DJ in Cuvee until 11.30pm.

Sweet talk the boss or bring the whole office… Whatever your excuse leave work early, get raceday ready and get to Ellerslie for the ultimate social experience.
