The Garden Party - Arrowfield Plate Raceday

300 Prospect Rd, Hastings

As the spring sunshine keeps streaming in, the racing action moves up a notch with one of New Zealand’s highest-rated races, the Group 1 Arrowfield Stud Plate. This day is regarded as one of the pivotal races of spring and this year will be no different.

There’s plenty of space along our beautiful home straight lawn to set up the perfect picnic spot with friends and family. Pack a delicious home-made picnic, or let us do the work for you and grab a bite on-course.
