Glitz and Glam at Ellerslie Racecourse

  • Auckland

The Boxing Day races at Ellerslie racecourse are famous for their glitz and glamour and this year was no different.

More than 15,000 race-goers turned their backs on the Boxing Day sales today to watch premier thoroughbred racing and enjoy the race day atmosphere.

The Christmas carnival races have been going for over 150 years and one major attraction is the "fashions in the field" where both women and men get creative with designing their costumes in five sections.

It's clear to see, whether you've come here for the races or the fashion show, it's a day to remember for all.
