The Sale Pavilions at Karaka in Auckland, and the Canterbury Agricultural Park in Christchurch, provide the ideal stage for the sale of standardbreds. The iconic complex at Karaka is renowned to be one of the best bloodstock sales facilities in the world. From the beautifully manicured gardens, uniformed barns within close proximity to parade rings and the sales pavilion itself, the venue, welcome and hospitality are second to none.
Cafes, bars and hospitality at the sales
The world-renowned Sales Centre at Karaka and facilities at the Canterbury Agricultural Park provide the ideal backdrop for this February’s annual yearling harvest. Along with quality stock, it is the buying experience that sets us apart from our rivals. Delicious kiwi food from onsite cafes, cold beverages served in the bars, piping hot barista made coffee, and the exceptionally warm welcome buyers receive from respected vendors are just a few highlights of the hospitality on offer this summer.
At Karaka, the Garden Bar located on the ground level is where you will find delicious pizzas, burgers, snacks and most importantly an extensive selection of beverages throughout the day. They even serve breakfast on Sale-day mornings! The Tulloch Café on level one provides cold and hot dishes, sandwiches, snacks and sweet treats for everyone to enjoy. Complementing the perfect view, choose between inspecting the indoor parade ring or have a seat outside with a cold beverage overlooking the complex Garden Bar lawn.
While in Christchurch at the Canterbury Agricultural Park, the catering is second-to-none with favoured delicacies on the menu and treats worth indulging for.
