gallops Pakuranga Hunt Day

Gates Open: 10:30 am Saturday 23 Aug - Ellerslie
Once upon a time there were hunt clubs up and down New Zealand hosting point to point meetings and staging jump racing fixtures. The wonderful Pakuranga Hunt is one of just a few that remain deeply involved. Another is the Rotorua Bay of Plenty Hunt (who race on 19 September) and the Otago Hunt Club (who race on June 9 at Wingatui). Pakuranga Hunt's enthusiasm for the sport is second to none and it shines through on their race day. The key race is the Pakuranga Hunt Club Cup and this always proves a key trial for the Great Northern, just two weeks later. read more >
