You missed it!

On Tuesday 7 November we hope you knocked off work early and joined us at Pukekohe Park for the only Melbourne Cup Day event in Auckland that had LIVE horse racing.

Usually held at Ellerslie, 2023 was Pukekohe’s final chance to host this memorable event where guests enjoyed the thrill of the races in front a backdrop of great hospitality.

In addition to the on-site racing, live coverage was broadcast direct from Flemington with the big race – the Lexus Melbourne Cup – screened live for all to see.

To add to this, Melbourne Cup Day was Auckland’s first stop for The Grand Tour Racing Festival, meaning you enjoyed yummy food, chill beats and all the good vibes in our GA area. Beats a Tuesday in the office, that’s for sure!

So whether you sipped Champagne in one of our hospitality precincts or did it your way in the general admission areas enjoying the racing itself, we hope you enjoyed Auckland’s most authentic Melbourne Cup event.
