New Zealand’s million dollar party!

The New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million is an international showstopper with the glitterati of the racing world and the social set coming out to play on course at Ellerslie over Auckland Anniversary Weekend.

This evening of fast-paced, high-stakes racing, along with one unmissable party, has become a must-attend on Auckland’s social calendar. After the fast-paced six races are played out, The CVE take over from our resident Ellerslie DJ and play all your favourite songs well into the night.

In January each year, the hammer goes down at the National Yearling Sales in Karaka and hundreds of finely-bred one-year-old horses are sold to new homes in the hopes of becoming the next 'big thing' in thoroughbred racing.

This year at Ellerslie, the top 14 qualified youngsters from the 2014 New Zealand Bloodstock National Yearling Sales will race head-to-head in New Zealand's richest race, the $1,000,000 New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million.

New for 2015 is the introduction of a spectacular fireworks display to provide a memorable end to a fun-filled day out and celebrate Auckland’s 175th birthday. Following the last race at approximately 8pm, racegoers will be entertained by live music in Cuvee and family entertainment in the Newmarket Room. Then at 9.15pm the night sky will be lit up with a celebratory fireworks display to bring the night to a close in style.

On the fashion front, Ted Baker has choreographed a luxurious collection of clothing and accessories for AW15 and will be showing off a few pieces at Karaka Million. Take the lead this AW15 and enjoy a strikingly stylish showcase. If you have a Karaka Clubhouse ticket you can get up close to view the fashion parade which will also be shown on the big screen.

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 in Cuvee until 11.30pm.

There’s no better reason to stay in Auckland for the long weekend and set your heart racing at Ellerslie!
