The hottest spot on course... non ci piove! 

Brand new in 2019 and back by popular demand, this precinct takes what is already an extraordinary night to the next level.

A pop-up slice of Italy, this trackside location is the hottest place to witness the night's $1 million races.  

Located next to the track on the Newmarket Lawn, we've transformed a corner of Ellerslie to offer guests a lively, Italian-inspired experience you can't get anywhere else on course. 


Let's start your party planning by saying Riccadonna Prosecco... Italian-style fare... a luxe Tuscan set-up... plus the sound of the track's "thunder" as the horses race past you on their way to the riches of the winning post.  And we will even throw in a racebook so you can ‘track talk' like the pros! 

After the last race, you'll get access to the official after-party in Cuvée.

All that’s left for you to do is find some friends keen to come enjoy a taste of Italy at our million dollar party!

Package includes:
  • A Riccadonna Prosecco or Stella on arrival

  • A voucher to put towards some mouth-watering pasta from Amaranto (with more pasta and dessert available to purchase)

  • Racecourse & Cavallo Club admission, race book & pen

  • Cash bar featuring Riccadonna, Champagne, selected standard & premium New Zealand still & sparkling wines, light & standard local & imported beers, cider, spirits & non-alcoholic beverages

  • Easy access to betting facilities

  • Outdoor & covered areas with unreserved seating available

  • As the Cavallo Club is a social precinct, seating is unreserved 

  • You're encouraged to park up and stay in this precinct after the last race to enjoy front row views of the night's famous fireworks, but you'll also get entry into the after-party in Cuvée too (R18, intoxicated persons not permitted, dress code applies)
