Racing Hall Of Fame – highlights screen on Easter Monday

Highlights of the inaugural dinner of the New Zealand Racing Hall of Fame will screen on Trackside this Easter Monday.

The inaugural Hall of Fame evening was a glittering and much-anticipated event that kicked off the first new Auckland Cup Week last month.

Trackside Television was there, to see the first 14 inductees to the Hall of Fame – equine and human - named and honoured.

Highlights of the evening, hosted by Phillip Leishman and Kelly Swanson-Roe, will be screened on Easter Monday. Be watching Trackside, 8-10pm, on SKY Digital or free to air on UHF.

“We were proud to support this important event,” says Trackside Executive Producer Glen Broomhall. “It was a milestone in New Zealand thoroughbred racing, and the start of an important focus of recognition for our racing greats. We are delighted to share with our viewers, the highlights of a fantastic evening.”

New Zealand Racing Hall Of Fame, Easter Monday 18 April, 8-10pm, Trackside
