Why become a sponsor?

Wingatui Racecourse and race days present a unique and fun way of advertising your business, as well as entertaining your staff, clients or prospective customers. No one sponsorship package fits all businesses, our team will work with you to develop a promotional sponsorship package that will deliver the best results for your business. The Otago Racing Club takes great pride in ensuring our sponsors and their guests have a great time at the track at every race day.


Key advantages of becoming a sponsor

Access to an attractive target market
The Otago Racing Club has successfully introduced two major race days in the last ten years; Melbourne Cup Day in November and the Christmas at the Races Meeting in Cromwell. Both these events now sit in the top ten attended race days in New Zealand with over 5000 patrons in attendance at each of these meetings.
Enhanced image in the broader racing market
The Otago Racing Club is the principal racing club in the southern half of the South Island and stages 13 race days a year, at two venues, Wingatui in Dunedin and Roundhill Racecourse in Cromwell. It is the only Club outside of Christchurch to stage a Premier Race Meeting, which is scheduled on Champions Day in February each year. Prize money distributed on this day is around $350,000.
Promotional opportunities
Sponsor a race day or individual race – you business name will go in every national newspaper, every form guide, on every betting ticket sold on your race, on TV and in the official race day racebook. Oncourse signage – the cameras will capture your company logo as the horses cross the finishing line providing for terrific brand exposure across New Zealand and Australia.
