SkyCity Boxing Day Races  - Saturday 26 December 2020

If you’re looking for a fun precinct that’s shared with likeminded people on Boxing Day, there’s nothing quite like the infamous Champagne Lawn.

You’ll love the buzzing atmosphere of this sell-out spot where you can drink in the views of the racecourse, and, equally important, take in the social festivities happening all around you.


Located right beside the track & on the prestigious Champagne Lawn, you have the flexibility to stay based at your reserved table, mingle with other like-minded guests on the lawn or get close to the day’s racing as the horses thunder past.


The Champagne Lawn sells out every year so don’t miss out on one of the SkyCity Boxing Day Races’ liveliest locations and make sure to book your tickets now.

A Champagne Lawn ticket also provides you access into general admission areas on course (meaning you can participate in, or watch, the day's Fashions in the Field competition and go around public pathways within the stabling complex) and go over to the Family Entertainment Zone in the infield (centre of racetrack).

Package includes:
  • Your own reserved seat at a table on the Champagne Lawn with sweeping views of the home straight and winning post

  • A delicious gourmet BBQ lunch designed by our award-winning chefs incorporating fresh, seasonal ingredients & including hot items from the grill, salads, dessert, tea & coffee

  • A complimentary drink on arrival with access to a cash bar featuring Champagne, selected still & sparkling wines, light & standard local & imported beers, a selection of spirits and non-alcoholic beverages

  • Racecourse & Champagne Lawn admission, racebook and pen
