Start the New Year in style!

The festivities continue on New Year’s Day!

What better way to see in the new year that with a day out at the races. Expect to see New Zealand's racing and society royalty out in force as they toast the beginning of 2015 with a high class day at the races. Arguably the best day’s horse racing in the country, of the 10 races, an impressive six carry black-type status.

Children will be kept entertained between races with free children’s entertainment that includes the Tip Top Popsicle Planet, New Zealand Herald Giant Games and Ellerslie Swingball Park.

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 9.30pm.
