Shake your shamrock; Auckland's Irish Raceday party is back!
Each year, Ellerslie Racecourse explodes in a sea of green when Auckland’s Irish contingent (and their friends) descend upon the course for the annual raceday knees-up.
Apparently there are only two kinds of people in the world, the Irish and those who wish they were, so we’re again channelling our inner leprechauns for the return of our immensely popular & colourful Irish festivities to the backdrop of a day's racing.
Speaking of racing, there'll be a full day's worth of it - headed up by the Auckland Futurity Stakes.
It’ll be an epic day out to be sure, to be sure.
