Note that on race days, bars in hospitality areas are due to close at the commencement of the last race. Drinks supplies per person during the day may be limited or restricted at any time during the day at the discretion of the Club or on direction from NZ Police to ensure compliance with relevant liquor legislation.

OMRC Security have been instructed to ensure hospitality areas are vacated no later than 30 minutes following the last race. The club appreciates our guests assistance in ensuring this occurs.
