Diamond Day provides the perfect opportunity for attendees to celebrate the finale of a fantastic week!

The best racing in New Zealand

Diamond Darling Fashion Competition

Whips n Spurs
As the grand finale of Auckland Cup Week, this event is a must-do on the Auckland social calendar and is the place to be seen this summer. Dress to impress and be ready to take a punt on some of the head turning studs and fillies in Cuvee.

Support Ronald McDonald House Charities®
Right across the summer, and culminating on Diamond Day, Auckland Racing Club is proud to be supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). RMCH takes care of New Zealand’s families throughout their children’s medical journeys.

Together, Auckland Racing Club and RMHC are aiming to raise funds to build desperately needed additional bedrooms at the Ronald McDonald House® in Auckland. These will become safe havens for Kiwi families, from all over New Zealand, whose children have been admitted for specialist treatment at the National Children’s Hospital. The funds raised will help ensure that RMHC continues to be there for every family who needs it. We are aiming to raise $80,000 which can help the build and fit out of one family bedroom which on average would become a home for 27 families across on year.

You can help Auckland Racing Club support RMHC by donating via the volunteers on course across the summer, buying an Auckland Cup Week pin from the volunteers on course, taking a table at the Diamond Day Long Lunch for Ronald McDonald House Charities or supporting the many other initiatives that Auckland Racing Club and their industry partners will be undertaking across the summer.
