Wangaratta Racecourse Details & Map | Wangaratta Racecourse

Wangaratta Racecourse, Wangaratta Turf Club. Description and details including a map of the racecourse.

Wangaratta Racecourse is at Osboldstone Road, Wangaratta, Vic and is home to Wangaratta Turf Club.

Racing began in 1845 at North Wangaratta, ten years later the club moved to its present site. Wangaratta is situated approximately 235 km's from Melbourne on the four lane Hume Highway (31).

The Wangaratta Racecourse was designed on similar lines to Flemington Racecourse.

Years ago included in the racing programs were pony races, hurdle races and steeplechases, with a water jump in front of the grandstand.

The first Wangaratta Cup was run in 1904 at Wangaratta Racecourse, before that time the premier race was called a plate.

St Patrick's Wangaratta Racing Club also used this track for their charity meetings from 1923-2003 and staged the first all grey horse race in Victoria at Wangaratta, and also the first Sunday meeting in the area on this track.

In 1985 the Wangaratta Turf Club was one of the first Victorian country clubs invited to race on Melbourne Cup Day, which has proven to be a bonanza for the club.

Wangaratta Turf Club holds 10 race meetings per year.
