It's no ordinary raceday!

If you've been chomping at the bit to get along to the races after a long winter without, then mark your diary for Saturday 8 September when Ellerslie celebrates the 'Coast to Coast' of horse racing - the Rodd & Gunn Great Northern Steeplechase!

In this gruelling race, horses and riders must gallop over 6400m, jump 25 fences (which are five feet high!) and race three times up and over the famous Ellerslie Hill. It's not for the faint-hearted!

The day's Meadow Fresh Great Northern Hurdle race will also provide nail-biting tension as the field races over 4190m and tackles 14 hurdles in a bid to be crowned the greatest in the land.

Certainly not like any other RaceDay - Rodd & Gunn Great Northern Day is winter racing at its finest! This RaceDay is also great fun for the whole family with a range of fantastic free activities.

Hospitality options including private functions are available for purchase or booking. Children under 15 years get in free.

Racecourse gates open 10:30am. Hospitality options open 11:15am. The first race is at 11:45 am and the last race is at 5:11pm.

Remember! You're more than welcome to bring along your own food, unopened non-alcoholic beverages, umbrellas, chairs, picnic tables, mini-marquees (and even the kitchen sink!) into public areas oncourse, but you'll have to leave the stronger stuff at home as Ellerslie is a fully-licensed venue and BYO alcohol is not permitted.
