Steeplechase Day

Wellington Steeplechase Day

Combining the raw power and stamina of a flat racing thoroughbred with the precision and impulsion of high-speed cross country jumping, gives you the brave and thrilling sport of Steeplechase.
Wellington Steeplechase is famed for its unique “figure-eight” track, a spectacle in itself but when viewed from the very top of the Public Stand, is one of the greatest sights of NZ jumps racing. 

Steeples, hurdles and gallops brings you the ultimate winter raceday – get your tweeds out and rally up your mates!
To add to the racing celebration is live music, a style stakes for trilby's tweeds and tartans and a few Hot Toddy’s to whet the whistle.


Upgrade your raceday for the ultimate experience and choose a hospitality package.

All hospitality packages include raceday admission, reserved seating for the entire raceday, water, racebook and pens and dedicated hosts.
