Melbourne and Sydney are the heart of ‘big money’ thoroughbred horse racing in Australia, with the 3 premier annual events being the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate and of course the biggest one of them all, the Melbourne Cup. The Cup is held annually on the first Tuesday in November at the Flemington Racetrack. Melbourne has three other major metropolitan venues; Caulfield, Moonee Valley and Sandown; whilst in Sydney Randwick and Rosehill are the premier tracks, with Canterbury and Warwick Farm also hosting numerous group races throughout the year.
What is widely recognised as the second tier of Australian racing, are Brisbane’s 2 longstanding premier racing venues, Eagle Farm (QTC) and Doomben (BTC). These 2 tracks along with South Australia’s Morphettville Racetrack, and the Western Australia’s Perth Ascot Racecourse, are the only other venues to hold group one races in Australia. These tracks may not offer as much prize money as some of their richer cousins, but they are the biggest racecourses in their respective states, each boasting multiple Group races annually.
Horse Race Australia has been created for those who have a passion for Australian horse racing, by providing information on the tracks and feature races in Australia, as well as the trainers and jockeys.
