From the TVNZ studios, to Ellerslie Racecourse, and hot spots across town - TVNZ 1 will offer a compelling mix of experts and entertainment to enhance your racing experience.

TVNZ Director of Content Cate Slater commented, “Our viewers have told us how much they enjoy big sporting events live and free-to-air, so we’re absolutely thrilled to bring New Zealanders’ the Melbourne Cup on TVNZ 1. What a fabulous precursor to our summer sport line up with NZ Cricket, America’s Cup and the Black Clash all to follow on TVNZ.”
