The Only Event In Auckland In January You Need To Know About

29 Nov 2021
Auckland Thoroughbred Racing

Giddy up Auckland, we’ve got the only event worth knowing about this January.

Tickets are selling faster than themed bacon bandaids, (yes, they’re actually a thing and they sold out incredibly fast at launch) so consider this your official hot tip this summer of racing.



As if your January calendar wasn’t already bursting, the New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million is pretty much a mandatory Auckland must-do, hosted here at Ellerslie (aka The Big E) in January.

Dust off the cufflinks, pop on a frock and come join our sport’s elite and the fash pack for this million dollar spectacular.

Who wouldn’t want to spend a warm summer’s evening (because it never rains in Akld 😉 ), with a Champagne or Leefield Station wine in one hand and winning ticket in the other?

There’ll be plenty of happenings around the racecourse – from the two $1,000,000 races (and then some), the fashion, the live music, the epicness that is the on-site afterparty (entry conditions apply) and more…

Guess that means we’ll see you here on 22 Jan?
