Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup Day


Date     Sunday 13 March 2022


A day that celebrates the running of the time-honoured $500,000 Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup® and boasts of a spectacular racing programme – it’s certainly a fitting close to Ellerslie’s 2021/22 season.

Off-track, Barfoot & Thompson Auckland Cup Day has a limited number of tickets still available for purchase, with groups of 100 being hosted in accordance with the COVID-19 Protection Framework 'Red' setting. To learn more about how the raceday is going to be run, click here.

In addition to the big one, the day’s racing menu includes the Group I Bonecrusher New Zealand Stakes, for the leading weight-for-age performers, while the country’s top two-year-old thoroughbreds clash in the Group I Sistema Stakes.
