The racing experience of 2021 at Riccarton Park.

Welcome to Riccarton Park

Our people are now working on site and can attend to any inquiries under COVID-19 Level 2.


Ticket Sale Release Delayed

The Canterbury Jockey Club has chosen to delay release of ticketing for the New Zealand Cup Meeting (6, 10, 13 November) from the proposed 1 September date.

 Although the Canterbury region has entered COVID-19 Level 2,  this level although allowing the conducting of racedays, precludes the attendance of a significant crowd.

 The Club will monitor the situation and release ticketing when there is a realistic expectation that we will be operating at Level 1 in November as we were last season where a crowd limit of 15,000 attended New Zealand Cup Day.
