A staple date in many an Aucklander’s calendar, the New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million draws a stylish crowd from far & wide to Ellerslie Racecourse to to celebrate an extraordinary event.
For a little over one minute, a glittering crowd will hold its breath as 14 of the country’s most promising two-year-old thoroughbred horses & some of our best jockeys compete for their share of one of NZ’s richest sporting purses – the $1,000,000 Karaka Million 2YO Classic.
And if one million-dollar contest wasn’t enough, there's another - the $1,000,000 Karaka Million 3YO Classic; plus a bunch of Group status races too.
Off the track, the party is just as rich with the who’s who of the international racing scene racing mixing with an influx of Auckland’s social set in any number of sell-out precincts on course.
The racecourse absolutely buzzes from the get-go and, once the night's been set alight with something that's guaranteed to make your insta-story; all racegoers (R18) are welcome to converge in Cuvée where the party carries on 'til late with live music & entertainment.
