Victoria Racing Club

The Victoria Racing Club (VRC)(1864) evolved from two earlier rival clubs, the Victoria Turf Club (1852) and Victoria Jockey Club (1857), who disbanded to create the new club.

They had previously run their own separate race meetings at the racecourse. Before the Victoria Turf Club began, self-appointed committees of interested horse owners had organised the annual races.

From 1864 until the end of 2001 the VRC acted as the principal authority responsible for the conduct of racing in Victoria.

It now participates in Racing Victoria Ltd which fulfils that role. In August 2006, the VRC was incorporated to become Victoria Racing Club Limited.

Flemington is the best-known racecourse in Australia. It is the oldest continuing metropolitan racecourse – there have been races held there every year since 1840.

It is the most significant racing heritage site in the country and in 2006 it was placed on the National Heritage List. Victoria's Racing Carnival
