Get in on the action

A space for those seeking a comfortable and premium ticket option, The Ned Lounge is one of the most sought-after areas on course.

Deck the halls with boughs of bubbles…Christmas party season has finally arrived and we’re here for it. With a gourmet buffet and beverage package included, this is an easy end-of-year entertainment option for groups of friends, clients or colleagues.

You’ll enjoy the best of both worlds, with convenient access to an exclusive outdoor area with bar leaners, whilst having your own dedicated table indoors for all day comfort.

With floor to ceiling glass frontage, you’ll have an unobstructed view of the horses as they enter the track before being swept up in the roar of the crowd as they flash past the winning post before your eyes.

Screens within the lounge also mean you won’t miss a second of the big races during the day.

We expect the lounge to sell out well in advance of the day, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Package includes:

  • A glass of The Ned Rosé or Stella Artois on arrival
  • Superb buffet menu designed by our executive chef Paul Barrett and incorporating the finest in New Zealand fare
  • Afternoon tea including a cheeseboard
  • Pre-allocated, reserved seat at a table of 10
  • Beverage package until the start of the last race, including standard & premium New Zealand wines, local & imported beers, RTD’s & non-alcoholic beverages
  • Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut at a discounted rate of $85 (normally $125)
  • Access to betting facilities within The Ned Lounge
  • Lounge admission and racebook
  • Ability to enjoy the fresh air with access to the balcony overlooking the track
  • Access to outdoor grandstand seating within walking distance of the area
  • Live racing coverage from Pukekohe Park is also broadcast within this precinct
