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, March 14 By RON GURNEY Woodville entrant Likageesix and fellow maiden Lincoln Hanover turned on the speed during a wet session at Awapuni this morning. All fast work was on the plough (slushy), where Likageesix and Lincoln Hanover reeled off a very smart 800m in 48 even, the last 600 in 36.5. Trained by Leon Mudgway, Likageesix (by Guillotine) was a Foxton trial winner (1000m) last month before finishing an eye-catching third on debut at Awapuni (1200m) two weeks ago. He has trained on beautifully. The same goes for Lisa Latta-trained Lincoln Hanover (by Showcasing), who finished third fresh up (1200m) the same day. Both horses should be winning races at short notice. A Per Incanto gelding and an Alamosa gelding, both trained by Mike Breslin, sprinted 600m in 38.9, while Sunday's Woodville runners Hank Moody (Wdvl Cup) and Amorata (r72 2200m) were kept to 1000m in 1.9.7, the last 600 in 40.7. Lyano, who tackles the NZ St Leger at Trentham on Saturday, was not after time over 1000m in 1.10.5, the last 600 in 41.4, and neither were last-start maiden winner Kapinos (r65 mile) and Sophia Magia, who clocked 1.15.3 and 42.7. King Cougar went an easy 600m in 44.1.
