in association with Leefield Station

The hottest spot on course...

Ticket price:

$95pp

$850 group of 10

Club member discounts apply

Back by popular demand, this precinct takes what is already an extraordinary night to the next level.

This trackside location, that channels the laidback, but chic, vibes of a Marlborough station, is the hottest place to witness the night's $1 million races.

Let's start your party planning by saying a glass of Leefield Station wine... classic Kiwi fare... a Marlborough station set-up... plus the sound of the track's "thunder" as the horses race past you on their way to the riches of the winning post.  And we will even throw in a racebook so you can ‘track talk' like the pros! 

After the last race, you'll be able to sit back and enjoy the sounds in the Cavallo Club or get access to the infamous official after-party in Cuvée.

All that’s left for you to do is find some friends keen to come enjoy a taste of the high life at our million dollar party!
