The redevelopment included the following:

1. The construction of a new race track with a circumference of 1840 metres and a home straight of 300 metres compared with the old straight of 200 metres.

2. The construction of a new grass training track and sand track inside the course proper.

3. New race day facilities for jockeys and race day officials.

4. A new purpose-built function centre, which will service race day patrons and be available for hire to the Gawler community on non-race days.

5. This facility will accommodate 350 people.

Premier Mike Rann officially reopened the track at the first race on the new surface on Wednesday 14 July 2010.

The inside grass track is 1840 metres in circumference and has a 300 metre long straight. The track has a few curves and a good long final turn can give inside barriers an advantage over distances of about 1700 metres and less.

Nearby racecourses included Balaklava Racecourse, Oakbank Racecourse and Strathalbyn Racecourse.
