When the Club first formed in 1864, the sport of racing swiftly gained in popularity.
The influx of people by train from regional towns led to a railway line being built to the Echuca Racecourse to accommodate the special `race' trains.
Despite a decline in popularity between the two World Wars, the enthusiasm for racing in the town continues today.
Echuca Racecourse has a circumference of 1,811 metres with a straight of 353 metres long. Width of the track is 18 metres up to the 400 metres, then widens to 33 metres in the straight.
Turns are wide and well-cambered. Track is fully irrigated and races well throughout the year. The field limit is 14 from all starts except the 1,600 metre start which is 10.
