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 31 By RON GURNEY Beefeater and Original Gangster again showed they are at the top of their game for the Taranaki meeting on Saturday with a bold final trial at Awapuni this morning. All fast work took place on the plough (good), though fog prevented the timing of several trials. Beefeater (Taranaki Cup) and Original Gangster (r65 2000m) galloped in solid fashion together on Tuesday and have followed that up with more pleasing work. They gathered speed from the 1200m peg to run the final 1000m in 1.5.1, the last 600 in 37.6, and both horses look leading prospects on Saturday. Beefeater won the Taranaki Cup last year, and Original Gangster will appreciate the step in distance in his first attempt past 1600m. A Guillotine gelding trained by Leon Mudgway and a Sweet Orange gelding trained by Lisa Latta were paired over 800m in 51.3, the last 600 in 37.9, and Veloce went alone in 52 even and 37.4. Heni and Ravenhill matched strides over 1000m in 1.6.8, the last 600 in 38.6, while an Alamosa filly and a Road To Rock filly, two more from the Breslin stable, ran 800m in 51.9 and 38.5. Weare Rocking and an Alamosa mare left 800m behind in 52.7, the last 600 in 38.7, while a Per Incanto gelding and a Rubiz colt, also from the Breslin barn, took 53 even and 38.1. Casino El Jay and a Sacred Falls maiden covered 800m in 53.1, the last 600 in 38.3, while their stablemates Young Squire (by Alamosa), placed third on debut at Otaki last Monday week, and Shelly's Lass (by Niagara), unplaced the same day, ran 53.1 and 39.2. An Ego-Sunshine Park maiden trained by David Hayes was timed 1000m in 1.7.6, the last 600 in 39.3.
