New format for live Karaka Million barrier draw

A live barrier draw with a new format at Karaka’s iconic sales complex will set the scene for the $1,000,000 Karaka Million 2YO and $1,000,000 Karaka Million 3YO Classic races to be run here at Ellerslie next Saturday 25 January.

The barrier draw for both $1 million races will take place next Wednesday 22 January with connections being invited to personally draw their own barrier by picking which stall they prefer, in order of the horses being drawn.

Similar to the Cox Plate barrier draw, horses that are drawn out early will give their connections the opportunity to pick the best starting gate for the million dollar features.

Our very own oncourse MC and Trackside presenter, Michael Guerin, will be hosting the event from 11.00am which will be broadcast live from the Village Green at Karaka.
