Addington is delighted to announce that the Christchurch Casino will continue to support New Zealand’s greatest race, the New Zealand Trotting Cup, for the next three years.
The ongoing commitment continues the Casino’s relationship with Addington and harness racing’s iconic race. First sponsored in 2005, this year will see a decade of involvement, support and sponsorship from the Christchurch Casino.
New Zealand Metropolitan Chairman Barry Dent commented “we are delighted that Christchurch Casino will be continuing as our business partner on one of the greatest days of harness racing in New Zealand. We really value the relationship and the huge support the Casino provides to our club not only on Cup Day but throughout the year. It is absolutely marvellous.”
Barry Thomas, Chairman of Christchurch Casinos Limited said that the Casino is pleased to be able to continue its support. “Times are tough in our City at the moment but Cup Day at Addington is Canterbury at its best, and we feel happy to be a part of it, a time when all Cantabrians can celebrate and present a positive message to the rest of the country.”
The Christchurch Casino New Zealand Trotting Cup will be run on Tuesday 11 November and this year’s running could well see history made. Champion Canterbury pacer Terror To Love is aiming to make it four Christchurch Casino Trotting Cups in succession, a feat yet to be achieved.
