Christchurch Casino NEW ZEALAND TROTTING CUP DAY

TUESDAY, 12 nOVEMBER 2019

The very best harness horses in Australasia compete in the feature race of the day, the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cup, which is the country’s most prestigious two-mile harness race run on Tuesday 12 November 2019.

Patrons wanting to be in the thick of the action – on and off the track – make a bee-line to the Lindauer Lawn & Rooftop. Located on a grassed area close to the track, the Lindauer Lawn & Rooftop is for patrons aged 18 and over and attracts the who’s who of New Zealand society. It’s a great place to view the on-course action.

The Public Village is suited for those wanting to spend the day in more laid-back environs. There you can find everything you might need for a great day out including entertainment, fashion competition, bars, totes, seating, toilets, food stalls and a big screen to watch the day’s action.

Located next to the Metropolitan Stand on the home straight is our Reserved Seating, positioned in a prime viewing area of the public grandstand (uncovered). A Reserved Seat is yours for the day whether you are seated there watching the racing action or enjoying some of the entertainment in the Public Village. See the image below to see where the Reserved Seating is located.

For the ultimate betting experience with friends or colleagues there is no better place to be than in the TAB Trackside Retreat. Positioned in a reserved area of the public village, it provides a private viewing area directly in line with the 75m mark. With easy track access and direct views of the large screen, it’s a must for those who want to be close to all the top racing action.

The general public track viewing is located directly in front of the Reserved Seating and the Public Village is located directly behind the Reserved Seating Grandstand.
