You may know that in the UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada the day after Christmas, called Boxing Day, is a holiday. And this is a tradition for a lot of people to go to the races and spend there the day with their families and friends. In the UK especially, it’s a big day for sport.
With my housemates we will surely go to the Ellerslie race courses for the day, the general admission is at 20$/person and 40$ for four persons. With this formula you have access to a field with BBQs, you can have some beers, watch the races and maybe bet some money, who knows you might be the great winner of the day… The formula « Beach, beats, and BBQ’s » seems pretty interesting as well.
There is no dress code in those areas but if you want to access some other areas on the oncourse, you’d better be careful with your dressing, or you could be not accepted… You can find the dress code here :
Those other areas are for example the Fashion Village (59$) where you have to be dressed the trendiest possible. There you have access to the betting facilities and are hosted with a glass of Moa or of Stella Artois. But if you want to spend a memorable day, you can also go to the upper stands at the Champagne Lawn where for 145$ you have a « gourmet luncheon » and the best view possible on the racecourse.
