Thousands of entertainment-seekers converge on course each year for an incredible combination of socialising, racing & entertainment.

A staple date in many an Aucklander’s calendar, the Karaka Million draws a stylish crowd from far & wide, here to celebrate an extraordinary event.

For 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.

And if one million-dollar contest wasn’t enough, this season we’re really upping the ante with yet another million dollar race - the $1,000,000 Karaka Million 3YO Classic – and four Group status races run in support.

Off the track, the party is just as rich with the who’s who of 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 when the last race is run, everyone descends upon our contemporary Cuvée Bar where a live band & DJ carry the party on ‘til late.
