New Year's Day Races

The Lunch

See in the new year in style.

Pukekohe Park

The Lunch

The best way to dust off the night before. Club member discounts apply.

Start the new year as you mean to go on and enjoy the races from your own reserved, indoor table. This space boasts access to an exclusive balcony from within the precinct where you can watch the elite thoroughbred athletes thunder past.

A fantastic shared precinct for family or friend groups, seats are limited and this lunch will sell out.

You’ll start the day with a Bloody Mary (the perfect cure to whatever is ailing you!), glass of bubbles or Stella Artois on arrival and the menu for the days’ buffet has been specially designed by our executive chef Paul Barrett.

Package includes:

  • Drink on arrival
  • Premium buffet lunch including afternoon tea and a cheeseboard
  • Pre-allocated, reserved seat at a table of 10
  • Level 1 admission
  • Cash bar featuring Champagne, selected standard & premium New Zealand wines, local & imported beers, RTD’s, spirits & non-alcoholic beverages
  • Complimentary racebook and access to betting facilities within the The Lunch precinct
  • Ability to enjoy the fresh air with access to a dedicated outdoor area
  • Live racing coverage from Pukekohe Park is also broadcast within this precinct
