Ellerslie Racecourse Boxing Day

Jasmine and I celebrated Boxing Day in the traditional NZ way: we went to the horse races. It was a beautiful summer’s day and we got to spend it outside watching horses going around in a circle. As it turns out, people go all out on Boxing Day at the races and there were quite a lot of fancy dresses on the grounds; we were a bit on the under dressed side. There is even an open to the public fashion show, which I’m trying to talk Jasmine into entering next year.

The only downside was that I have no idea how to gamble on horse racing so I lost a bit of money. :(

It was perfect weather
