General Admission and Lindauer Lawn tickets are on sale from today, Friday 1 August, for Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cup Day and Show Day Races at Addington, part of New Zealand Cup and Show Week.
Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cup Day is one of the most glamorous and highly anticipated social events on Canterbury’s calendar and last year attracted a crowd of over 22,000.
This year will see total attendance capped at 25,000. Over the last two years there has been an increase in demand for tickets with facilities and infrastructure able to accommodate up to 25,000 patrons.
To ensure customers do not miss out on securing a ticket, be it General Admission, Lindauer Lawn or Hospitality packages, it is recommended that tickets are purchased well in advance to Cup Day.
The spectacular day is a festival of elite harness racing, fashion, food, fun and music. Anyone who is anyone will be at this highlight of New Zealand’s racing calendar.
The very best harness horses from New Zealand and Australia will take centre stage in the Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cup, Australasia’s most prestigious two mile harness race.
This year champion Canterbury pacer Terror To Love is aiming to make history and become the first horse ever to win four Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cups.

Race goers have a number of options as to where they can enjoy their day at the track. The Lindauer Lawn (restricted to patrons aged 18 years or older) is the social hub of Cup Day action and is located on a grassed area close to the race track and the presentation area. There is also a range of great hospitality options if you want to enjoy Cup Day in style.
