Melbourne Cup enthusiasts are on the countdown to tomorrow’s (Tuesday 3 November) Spring Racing Celebration at SKYCITY Convention Centre. Those who got in fast to the sold out event are getting their swish outfits off the hanger for the Emirates Fashion in the Field to be judged at the event by fashionista Denise L'Estrange-Corbet of fashion label World, SKYCITY’s CEO, Nigel Morrison and Emirates NZ Manager, Chris Lethbridge, with the lucky winner in for return flights for two to Australia.


The live racing will be on the big screen all afternoon while entertainment will be supplied by New Zealand’s infamous Peter Urlich Band with special guests Nathan Haines and DJ General Lee.


Kevin Clayton, SKYCITY Group General Manager Marketing and Events is delighted that Aucklanders have confirmed they want to celebrate Melbourne Cup in style in the heart of the City. “We are pleased to be bringing to Auckland the first-ever SKYCITY Spring Racing Celebration to mark the biggest Australasian event in the racing calendar. It’s no surprise that this event has sold out because Aucklanders love big events and we’re looking forward to hosting it annually.”


Every guest through the door is in to win a trip to Dubai with Emirates worth over $18,000.


SKYCITY’s Spring Racing Celebration is supported by Emirates, Moët & Chandon, Stella Artois, The New Zealand Herald, TAB and East Day Spa.
