Doomben Racecourse is located at Hampden Street, Ascot QLD.
Doomben Racecourse is operated by the Brisbane Racing Club, Brisbane QLD. The racecourse is approximately 7 kilometres north of the Brisbane CBD.
The Doomben Racecourse (also known as the 'Garden' course due to the gardens located around the course) is operated by the Brisbane Racing Club which was formed on 1 July, 2009 - the result of a merger between the Queensland Turf Club (QTC) and Brisbane Turf Club (BTC).
The merger of the former 2 racing clubs is a first for Australian Racing which makes Queensland the current front runner in this demanding industry. Doomben Racecourse had a major upgrade in 1982 bringing it up to a world class standard. In 1996 ultra modern drainage system technology was introduced to the course which now provides excellent drainage when heavy rains come.
The first race meeting was held at Doomben Racecourse in 1933. During the 2nd World War the racecourse was taken over by the Army and used to stage troops. It was reopened again in 1946.
Doomben Racecourse is fully turfed, is 26 metres wide with a circumference of 1,715 metres and a home straight being 350 metres long. All races are run in a clockwise direction.
