Come and join us on track to celebrate Canterbury Anniversary Day. Show Day Races at Addington on Friday 17 November 2017 is the ultimate harness racing day out!

Feature races include the Woodlands NZ Free For All for the very best pacers and the Haras des Trotteurs Dominion Handicap for the highest quality trotters.

Addington wishes to announce there will be no charge for Show Day Races GA Tickets. This year we wish to support the Maia Health Foundation and we kindly ask for a gold coin donation upon entry.

Your kindness/donation will assist the Maia Health Foundation raise money for a larger rooftop and future proofed helipad.
Facts behind why it is essential for Christchurch to have a rooftop helipad.

- Currently it takes 13 minutes to get from Hagley Park helipad to hospital by ambulance
- Approximately 700 landings a year
- A substantial increase in emergency landings and transfers over the past three years
- Rooftop helipad eliminates double handling of patients and frees up ambulance and police resources
- Quickens the pickup and unloading of a neonatal incubator by about 1 hour on a round trip

Located on the ground floor of the Metropolitan Stand, Spectators is Addington’s 7 day a week bar & bistro. Included in the price is access to casual seating in Spectators, a race guide and food, beverage and TAB facilities. You will also have access to all general public areas.

2017 Spectators Price: $35 per person + booking fee (available 1 Sept until sold out) | Children aged 14 years and under are free (limited tickets).
