Become a sponsor at Awapuni

Benefits of sponsorship 

Raceday Sponsorship packages are very affordable and represent great value. Sponsorship options start from around $1500 for supporting races on Saturdays and public holidays and $1000 midweek.

Amongst the benefits Raceday sponsors will receive are :

• Naming rights to an event with your business name appearing in national newspapers as part of their racing coverage, on Radio Trackside, live TV coverage through the TAB Trackside channel (350,000 viewers every week watch Trackside) and in over 600 TAB retail outlets throughout New Zealand. 

• Racebook advertising and oncourse signage on the day.

• Raceday VIP hospitality including tickets, racebooks and Committee luncheon invitation.

• The opportunity to meet the winning owners of your race and celebrate their success and you will be able to make a small presentation (which is provided by the Club) to the winner of your race to mark the occasion.

• Exclusive access to the Club's sponsor facilities to entertain your clients/guests on the day can also be arranged.

• Ongoing involvement in the Club's activities throughout the year.

• Major race sponsors ($5000+) also have the opportunity to erect permanent signage oncourse. Sponsorship of major "black type" races increases the national coverage and profile of your event and may include naming rights to the raceday, e.g. Ford Manawatu Sires Produce Stakes meeting.

Racing Sponsorship works providing the perfect mix of business and pleasure

AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Thursday, January 3 By RON GURNEY Smart three-year-old Lincoln Falls took another step toward his Levin Classic goal at Trentham on Saturday week with a solid gallop at Awapuni this morning. All fast work took place on the plough (good), where Lincoln Falls stretched out boldly over 800m in 50.7, the last 600 in 37.2. He could easily have gone a lot quicker if required to. Lincoln Falls was a Trentham winner (3yo 1400m) two starts ago, then a very satisfactory fourth in the Uncle Remus Stakes at Ellerslie (1400m) on Boxing Day in his first attempt right-handed. Time honours this morning went to his stablemates Lincoln's Secret and Chartwell, who cut out 800m in 48.8, the last 600 in 36.8. They race at Otaki on Monday. Lincoln's Secret (r65 2100m) has disappointed in two races this campaign, despite strong track gallops, while Chartwell showed significant improvement at Hastings last start. Sweepstake and Sunday's Greymouth entrant Car Pie (mdn 1100m), both trained by Mike Breslin, were on terms over 800m in 50.9, the last 600 in 37.4. Car Pie, unplaced in her two runs on heavy tracks during the winter, will be ridden by stable apprentice Danielle Hirini, whose mounts include four for Wanganui trainer Kevin Myers. New Zealand Derby nominee Sir Nate, who races at Marton on Saturday (3yo 1400m), warmed up from the 1000m (1.9.3) to run home his final 800m in 51.8, the last 600 in 38.2. He has not raced since finishing third in the 2000 Guineas at Riccarton. Bella Margarita (r65 1550m) had trainer Lucy Tanner aboard over 800m in 51.6, the last 600 in 38.2, and Wafer came up with 52.2 and 38.9. Lincoln Star (r72 2100m), first and second in two starts at the Manawatu Christmas meeting, and Otaki runner Lincoln Melody (r72 f&m 1600m) were paired over 800m in 52.1, the last 600 in 38.1. Jessiegee, in on Saturday (r72 2100m), and Ravenhill, who heads to Otaki (r65 2100m), did a quiet round and a half before galloping 800m in 53.8, the last 600 in 38.3. Ravenhill will race without blinkers. Eva Dawn, resuming at Otaki (mdn 1200m), covered 800m, the last 600 in 39.8, and Manawatu entrant The Rippa (r72 1400m) ended with an easy 40.1. Platinum Spirit (by Charm Spirit), who debuts at Otaki (mdn 2yo 800m), and Hell Fire were not after time over 800m in 53.1, the last 600 in 40.4. Platinum Spirit won a jump-out at Levin (850m) last month. Last-start winner Du'blues cruised over 1000m in 1.11.4, the last 600 in 41.4, and Valour, off to Otaki (r65 1400m), sprinted up the straight twice.
