Rosehill Racecourse can be found around 23 kilometres to the west of Sydney's city centre
Rosehill Racecourse is operated by the Australian Turf Club.
The Racecourse is located west of Sydney in the suburb of Rosehill. It is approximately 23 kilometres from Sydney's CBD.
In 1943 the Sydney Turf Club was founded and is the youngest of Australia's Main Racing Clubs. The Turf Club was created following the New South Wales parliament passing the Sydney Turf Club Act. This Act took over 40 years to come into force and gave the Turf Club the right to conduct 62 race meets annually at the Rosehill Racecourse and Canterbury Park Racecourse combined.
The Sydney Turf Club and the Australian Jockey Club officially merged in February 2011 to form a new Sydney racing club, the Australian Turf Club and commenced racing on Monday 7th February 2011 in NSW. The NSW Government in 2011 pledged $24 Million for new facilities and improvements to Rosehill Racecourse.
Rosehill Racecourse is fully grassed. The track width at the winning post is 20 metres and the circumference is 2,048 metres. It has a good long home straight being 408 metres long and all races run in a clockwise direction.
There are numerous training tracks at the course including these 4 main tracks.
The racecourse is known as a specialist track. Rosehill Racecourse is a box like shape with even sweeping corners. Runners from the rear can win due to the long straight.
Rosehill Racecourse offers quality viewing for punters having modern three tiered stands with bars, restaurants and betting facilities as well as corporate boxes and a fully-covered betting ring.
