Eagle Farm Racecourse is located on Lancaster Road, Ascot QLD.
The Eagle Farm Racecourse is operated by the Brisbane Racing Club. The track is situated 6.3 km from the City of Brisbane. It is conveniently located at the gateway to Brisbane’s southern suburbs.
The Brisbane Racing Club formed after the merger of the Queensland Turf Club (QTC) who organised Eagle Farm racing, and the Brisbane Turf Club (BTC) which raced at Doomben Racecourse. The BTC and QTC had over 140 years combined racing and administration experience.
The official commencing date of the Brisbane Racing Club was the first of July 2009.
Previously the Eagle Farm Racecourse was operated by the Queensland Turf Club Ltd. The Club was formed in 1863 with the first race meeting held in 1865. The Queensland Turf Club was managed by a Board of Directors.
The Brisbane Racing Club proposed in 2009 a $1.2 billion self-funded development upgrade to facilities at both Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses along with a variety of lifestyle, commercial precincts and residential. This is to ensure that Brisbane Racing stays up to date with the countries finest racing amenities.
