STRATFORD RACES – NEW YEAR’S EVE.
31st December, at beautiful Te Kapua Park in Stratford.
Stratford Races - December 2012
With large spacious grounds bordered by bush and lakes and an extensive lawn area, this raceday is ideal for picnickers either in front of the public stand which is in front of the winning post, or out the back beside the lake and gardens. Admission is free to the course itself and to the extensive grandstands. Children's entertainment includes air castles, face-painting, wooden train rides and lollies and there's lots of free prize giveaways.
Owners wishing to stay over have ample stalls and paddocks available at the course, free of charge. A complimentary barbeque is held at the course the evening before the races (30th); all owners and their guests are welcome to attend.
The feature event is as usual the Stratford Cup for $30,000 and the trophy. With its sweeping home turn and testing straight, the Stratford course provides quality racing where every horse has its chance.
