This is arguably the greatest week of racing in New Zealand, embracing everything that is great about Christchurch and Canterbury.
Nine Group and Listed races dominate the 30 races held over the three days (Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday).
At this meeting Riccarton Park becomes the focal point of spring racing with the very best three-year-olds travelling to Christchurch seeking to emulate some of the greats of the Australasian turf by winning either of the Guineas races.
