The annual Ontrack New Zealand Horse and Wine Tour ended this week and, as usual, it was a fantastic trip.
The 21 participants were treated to spectacular weather, scenery, food and wine and got the opportunity to explore some of the leading stud properties in Australasia.
"The New Zealand tour was our 11th visit over the Tasman and it fails to deliver," said Ontrack Managing Director Grant Morgan.
"Opening with a day on the magnificent Waiheke Island always sets the scene and this year provided a perfect day to enjoy all the island offers.
"After a days' racing at Pukekohe we headed south to enjoy the best studs New Zealand offers.
"Being able to catch up with Sir Patrick Hogan a couple of days before he announced he had sold the property was also pretty special," said Grant Morgan.
"Ontrack would like to thank Cambridge, The Oaks, Windsor Park, Waikato, Rich Will, Trelawney and Westbury Stud for their time and hospitality in hosting our group and making the tour a special memory for everyone."
The 2017 tour season rolls on next week when the Hong Kong International Racing Tour jets off on Tuesday for a spectacular week of fine dining, sightseeing and sensational racing.
