Come be part of the roar of the crowd!
Our general admission areas provide a relaxed, laidback way for eventgoers to enjoy their day and offer excellent viewing opportunities of the racetrack and associated areas.
From the moment the horses leave the stables, you’ll have endless opportunities to get up close to these amazing animals in our general admission area.
When it comes time to race, you have the option of either enjoying exceptional views from the covered, outdoor seating upstairs in the Ellerslie Stand or get as close as possible to the thunder of the track from the open space of public lawns which neighbour the home straight.
The Newmarket Room, located on the ground floor of the Ellerslie Stand, is open to the public and offers a range of tasty food & beverages to purchase.
You’re welcome to bring along your own picnic food, unopened non-alcoholic beverages, as well as chairs & picnic rugs for use in our general admission areas.
What's more, there will be free pony rides, a petting zoo and more to help keep the little ones entertained in general admission areas between races!
Entry to hospitality areas may be refused if the dress code is not adhered to, however there is no dress code in general admission areas (though a tidy standard of dress is encouraged)
Tickets are non-refundable and include a 2.5% transaction fee. A separate booking fee of $1.50 per ticket will also apply upon purchase.
Ellerslie encourages responsible drinking
Intoxicated persons will not be granted entry to Ellerslie Racecourse
We strongly encourage guests leave cars at home. Don’t drink and drive; use our preferred taxi supplier Auckland Co-op to get you to and from the event. They will drop you off at the main entrance and you can catch one from the same place for the journey home. Ring 09 300 3000 to book
