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.

AWAPUNI TRACKWORK Thursday, January 17 By RON GURNEY Alamosa filly Quatromosa looked a huge improver for the Otaki meeting on Monday judging by her fine track trial at Awapuni this morning. All fast work took place on the plough (good), where Quatromosa was paired with stablemate Lincoln's Secret over 1000m in 1.4.5, the last 600 in 36.6. Three races under the belt have not produced any significant form so far, but she has been a work in progress and is ready to pay a dividend at least. Princess Amelie, who is heading to Karaka Million night next week, worked the reverse way (right-handed) with stablemate Lincoln's Gal and reeled off 1000m in 1.5.9, the last 600 in 36.2. Princess Amelie won a trial early last month then finished third over 1200 metres at Ellerslie on Boxing Day. Shared Secrets warmed up from the 1000m to run her final 800m in 49.9, the last 600 in 36.9, while Otaki runner Lincoln Fury and a Tavistock gelding took 50.2 and 37.9. Lincoln Fury (by All Too Hard) ran a much improved second placing at Wanganui last start with the blinkers on for the first time. Wellington entrant Higher Power (Desert Gold Stakes) drew attention to her chances with a very sound 1000m with Heavenly Echo in 1.4.1, the last 600 in 37.3. Otaki runners Master Lincoln (Mastercraftsman) and Port Lincoln (by Alamosa) covered 800m in 50.7, the last 600 in 37 even, and Don't Know Jakk (Otaki) worked alone, finishing with 600m in 37.7. He can go one better than his last-start second at Tauherenikau. Rockabye, unplaced on debut at Tauherenikau, and Casino El Jay, were on terms throughout 1000m in 1.5.5, the last 600 in 38.3, while Colorado Miss and Tiro came up with 1.6.6 and 38.4. All four go to Otaki on Monday. Telegraph Handicap lightweight Sweepstake had Saturday's race rider Rosie Myers aboard over 1000m in 1.7.3, the last 600 in 38.9, and she has run into form at the right time. Viva La Platinum (Otaki) and a Sweet Orange maiden went together over 800m in 51.1, the last 600 in 38.1, and Lincoln Raider, in at Wellington (r82 mile), galloped alone in 51.5 and 38.2. Passing Glance and Alesha Lincoln, both heading to Otaki, matched strides over 800m in 51.6, the last 600 in 38.2, followed soon after by Miss Doherty and Sophia Magia in 52 even and 38.6. An Alamosa two-year-old trained by Peter Didham and a Roc de Cambes gelding with Lisa Latta ran 800m in 52.3, the last 600 in 38.2, while Weare Rocking and Hypatia clocked 52.3 and 38.6. Otaki entrant Floral Art, now with Peter Didham, left 800m behind in 53.4, the last 600 in 38 even, while a Rip Van Winkle two-year-old and an Alamosa three-year-old, both from that barn, sprinted 600m in 39.3. A Per Incanto gelding and an Alamosa gelding, both trained by Mike Breslin, warmed up from the 800m (56.9) to run home the last 600 in 39.5. Authentic Paddy, in Saturday's Thorndon Mile, had Robert Hannam in the saddle over an even 800m in 53.8, the last 600 in 40.2, thus was not extended at any part. He looks in terrific order. Blue On Black (by Camelot), a winner at Ruakaka in September, was not after time over 800m in 56.5, the last 600 in 40.5. He is trained by Anne Herbert, who is now based at Awapuni. Wellington Cup hopeful Duplicity was kept to a quiet round before increasing the tempo slightly on the second circuit to run 1000m in 1.10.1, the last 600 in 40.6. Amorata, in at Otaki, cruised over 1000m in 1.16.9, the last 600 in 40.5, while Lincoln Sky (Otaki) and a Super Easy maiden stablemate did 800m in 56.2 and 41.3. Rosetta sprinted 600m in 41.1, while her stablemates Here Comes Trouble (by Darci Brahma), who was a trial winner in October, and a Pins three-year-old gelding went together in 41.2. Wellington runner Fibonacci (r65 1200m) covered 600m in 42 even, while Anne Herbert-trained Wings (by Rock 'n' Pop), a maiden winner in the spring, clocked 42.3.
