If your idea of a good time involves sipping on cocktails and partying the day away, you’re gonna want to mark this event in your diary.
The racing season has arrived in Auckland and we’re totally stoked (mostly because we love any excuse to dress up and sip Champagne during the day). Whips n Spurs kick-starts the season’s festivities and the all-day party is not. to. be. missed.
Held on October 28 (a party-friendly Saturday FYI), Ellerslie Racecourse will be buzzing with good times. The Champagne and cocktails will be flowing as live DJs drop epic beats. Dance the arvo away before refuelling at a Vietnamese street food pop-up—anyone for bánh mì?
Whips n Spurs is also the perfect excuse to get glammed up and treat yourself to a fresh manicure. There will be prizes for the best dressed but if that’s not for you, fear not. Half the fun is dressing up and feeling fab. Oh, and if you needed another reason to get a new outfit, Miss Crabb is giving event-goers 20% off full-price items from their beautiful store.
Guaranteed to be a sell-out event, the day is jam-packed with racing to keep you entertained. Back the horse with the coolest name and watch them gallop past right before your very eyes. Go Hoof Hearted, go!
So, assemble your squad, get dressed up and head to Ellerslie Racecourse. There’s a party calling your name.
