The prestigious Auckland Cup Week culminates with Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup Day on 9 March 2019. It’s the final hurrah to an incredible summer of racing.

With the running of the $500,000 Group 1 Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup the feature of the day, the revered piece of silverware (from which the week takes its name) and a place in the history books will go to one of racing’s great athletes vying for the big prize.

Racegoers are encouraged to add a touch of blue to their outfits in an ode to Auckland City and the day will also play host to a fashion competition where lady luck determines who wins and who gets pipped at the post.

Add to this good people, delicious food, children’s entertainment, all taking place on a gorgeous March day and you've got a buzz like nowhere else. With a raft of hospitality options available including the return of the chic precinct ‘The Enclosure’, launched last year, it has all the elements for the greatest end of summer celebration.

Then, once the jockeys have hung up their saddles, the famous on-site afterparty kicks into gear to sign off Auckland Cup Week in true Ellerslie style.
