Welcome to the thrill and excitement of racing at Ellerslie Racecourse. 

We're the premier home of thoroughbred racing in New Zealand and our racedays are events not to be missed.



Due to the current COVID-19 alert level in New Zealand, we are not racing at Ellerslie until 12 September 2020.  However, we are pleased to announce that our event centre is open and able to hold business and social (weddings, birthday parties) events of all types for up to 100 guests.   



If you have an urgent enquiry, please email racing@ellerslie.co.nz and we will do our best to respond within one working day.

We look forward to welcoming you back here one day soon.
