Carena Says...

"The New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Million is my favourite race day.

High stakes and high energy, it is also the most glamorous of Auckland Racing Club's events. There's an opulence to this raceday, with luxurious fabrics and intricate smaller headwear being the winner on the day.

There is a fine line between what would be deemed "too cocktail", so ensure you still follow the standard rules of racewear (read: keep the strapless mini bodycon dresses at home) and you will be home free.
