Pakuranga Hunt Day

Enjoy a day at the races with friends & family

Of all the traditional hunt clubs in New Zealand, Auckland's Pakuranga Hunt is one of just a few that host their very own raceday.


The highlight of the day's card is the Pakuranga Hunt Club Cup - a steeplechase race where horses & riders race over jumps.  


Always hotly-contested, it's the perfect warm-up for those set to do battle in the Great Northern Steeplechase which is run here at Ellerslie a couple of weeks later, on 17 October.  

Free general admission
