NZB Karaka Million | Track gallops

As a prelude to the NZB Karaka Million meeting here next Saturday 23 January 2021, we're opening our track this coming Monday 18 January for potential runners to have a gallop on.

The gallops start at 7.00am & are free to come watch.


To help set your morning off on the right hoof, we'll be brewing some hot and FREE coffee for those permitted to enjoy an early morning caffeine hit.
