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, February 7 By RON GURNEY Rising star three-year-old Lincoln Falls will wear blinkers for the first time when he contests the Group 2 Waikato Guineas (2000m) on Saturday. The Dundeel colt trialled in them at Awapuni this morning and did not disappoint in his final gallop before Te Rapa. Lincoln Falls worked alone on the plough (good) and reeled off 1000m in 1.4.3, increasing the tempo as he went, to come home the final 800m in 48.8, the last 600 in 35.6. He was not disgraced finishing fifth in the Group 1 Levin Classic (1600m) last start, just under a length and a half from the winner, and will appreciate the step up to 2000 metres. Anne Herbert-trained duo of Blue On Black and Wings were paired over 1000m in 1.6.6, the last 600 in 37.6, while Hypatia and Rockabye clocked 1.7.7 and 38.1. Authentic Paddy, who suffered a cardiac arrhythmia in the Thorndon Mile last start, breezed over 800m in 52.4, the last 600 in 38.7, and Sweepstake, unplaced in the Telegraph Hcp, took 52.5 and 38.2. Last-start Trentham winner Shared Secrets (Summer Cup) covered 1000m in 1.9.2, the last 600 in 39.7, while Car Pie and a Howbaddouwantit filly sprinted 600m together in 39.7.
