Auckland Cup Week continues with Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup Day, an opportunity for every Aucklander to take pride in their city and a great excuse to have a half day off featuring:

The best racing in New Zealand
The $500,000 Group I Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup is a gruelling handicap race for any age horse, run over 3200m and dating back to its first running in 1874. The Auckland Cup itself is a magnificent Victorian trophy that Queen Victoria commissioned her Crown Jeweller to make in 1889. Gifted to the Club in the 1930s by Moss Davis (an Auckland Racing Club member), this priceless silver trophy reflects the heritage and prestige of the great race. Keep an eye out for this magnificent piece of silverware taking pride of place on the dais in the Birdcage. Other feature races on the day include the Group lll McKee Family Sunline Vase and the Group lll Westbury Classic

Cup Couture
A change to the 2015 competition, Cup Couture now celebrates the best dressed man and the best dressed woman individually who represent the style, glamour and sophistication of Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup Day.

Great corporate hospitality options
