There’s nothing like a family day out at the races!

New Zealand has some of the world’s most picturesque racecourses, perfect places for packing up the kids and grandparents and heading to the track for a picnic under the trees.
The races provide a unique social occasion for everyone to enjoy, from picking out a horse to have a flutter on to lolling in the afternoon sun while licking an ice-cream.

Check out the hugely popular “Summer Festival Days” which run nationwide at 41 courses around the country. Packed full of fun, free, children’s entertainment, from face-painting and fun rides to race book quizzes, not to mention all the action of the races themselves!
