Horsham Racecourse Details & Map | Horsham District Racing Club

Horsham Racecourse, Horsham District Racing Club. Description and details including a map of the racecourse.

Horsham Racecourse is located at Bennet Road Horsham VICTORIA.

Horsham Racecourse is situated on the outskirts of The Grampians National Park in Western Victoria approximately 310 kms north-west of Melbourne.

It is believed they were racing horses in Horsham in the 1850s, and club records show the first Horsham Cup was run in 1861. It is not clear exactly when official racing started in the town but it certainly has a long history.

The Horsham Racecourse is operated by the Horsham District Racing Club as a result of a 1965 merger between the Horsham St Patrick's Racing Club and the Brim Springs and Rosebrook Race Club.

Despite this rationalisation the club remained at a crossroads. In the late 1960s the Racecourse Licenses Board commissioned a report which found that the surrounds at the Horsham Racecourse were in poor condition and in need of repair.

The Board urged an amalgamation that would have seen nearby Murtoa and Horsham racing at one venue.

Both clubs immediately set about upgrading their facilities at the Horsham Racecourse and is thriving today.

In 1992 the Horsham club joined forces with the Horsham Harness Racing Club and a trotting track and function centre were built at what is now known as the Horsham Racing Centre.
