Fresh off the back of two hugely successful ‘Christmas at the Races’ race-days in November and December, Racing Tauranga is very much looking forward to its Autumn Carnival.
This year Racing Tauranga is hosting two race-days in March, Saturday the 17th and Saturday the 24th.
Having St. Patrick’s Day (17 March) on a Saturday this year will ensure the Craigs Investment Partners sponsored race-day will be well attended by those with Irish heritage and those who don’t, but wish they did! Live music along with plenty of other entertainment will ensure a most enjoyable day out for all who attend.
The flagship race meeting of the season for Racing Tauranga is Bayleys International Race Day, held this year on the 24th of March. This day features all the glitz and glamour with the Shiseido Fashions in the Field. With excellent prizes up for grabs, the standard of entrants is getting higher and higher each year. Last year’s winner, Lizzie Charleston, went on to represent Racing Tauranga in Brisbane where she finished third in the Brisbane Racing Carnival’s fashion event. As well as beautifully attired women, the fast paced thoroughbred action will be sure to set hearts racing as New Zealand’s best milers compete in the Windsor Park Japan New Zealand International Trophy race worth $100,000.
Marketing and Events co-ordinator Abbie Davie believes Bayleys International Race Day is “a not-to- be-missed day for all ladies interested in fashion, bubbles and quality cuisine. In today’s world there aren’t too many opportunities where ladies can go to that extra effort to look the part, race-day is one such opportunity”.
