New Zealand Cup Week - Riccarton Park Racecourse
Arguably the greatest week of racing in New Zealand featuring 9 Group and Listed races.
The 1st and 3rd day are two of only five Premier meetings held in the South Island each year.
The meeting becomes the focal point of spring racing with the very best 3 year-olds traveling to Christchurch seeking to emulate some of the greats of the Australasian turf by winning either the New Zealand 2000 or 1000 Guineas.
