Clubs NZ Family Day - Saturday 22 January 

Think jandals, sunhats and picnic blankets - as the name suggests, 22nd January at Trentham Racecourse provides the perfect opportunity to kick back with the family and enjoy summer racing at its finest. There'll be a circus of children's entertainment on offer (read: you'll be left in peace to enjoy the racing and a beverage or two...), including a petting zoo, face painting and kids’ fashion in the field competition.

Pack a chilly bin, pitch yourself a base for the day and enjoy a good old-fashioned day at the races. A general admission ticket will set you back $10 and a member for a day ticket $20.
