ITM Interprovincial Challenge

12:00pm Saturday, 25 August 2018

The first race day of the 2018/2019 racing season at Pukekura Raceway, the ITM Interprovincial Challenge Race Day is all about provincial pride.

Our feature race, the $50,000 ITM Interprovincial, has the jockey’s wearing Silks to match the colour of their representative province around New Zealand, and riding to prove their region is the best.

This year we will also be running the 'Naki Challenge race for 2 year olds, with prize money of $101,000!

We encourage racegoers to 'show their colours' on this race day and support their region during the big race.

Tickets available in the La Mer Lounge or the Amber & Black Club. Book early to avoid disappointment.
