Kilmore Racecourse is steeped in history dating back prior to 1850.
The horses ran over rolling meadows between two points in an “out and back” design. That undulating character was retained when the track moved to its present site in 1865 and is quite different from the flat tracks favoured by most Clubs.
The Kilmore Cup is run in mid February on a Sunday each year during the Melbourne autumn carnival.
Kilmore Racecourse boasts one of the toughest layouts and uphill runs in thoroughbred racing in Australia. In particular, the home straight run that climbs four metres and challenges both horses and jockeys, calls for race tactics unique to this track. Other features include:
- Track is very well drained and provides a good surface for racing in the winter
- Tough uphill run in the straight
- Type of soil is light loam
- Width of the track is 20 metres
