Popularity Of Racing In Australia

Horse racing enjoys a huge profile in Australia and the industry is positively booming. In terms of attendances, only Aussie Rules football and Rugby League attract more spectators.

Around $15 billion is bet on horse racing by Australians, every year. Both jumps and flat racing take place here. There are over three hundred and fifty tracks that are registered. More horses are entered into Australian races than in any other country apart from the United States of America.

Australia ranks only behind America and Japan, in terms of combined purses. To put it simply, the Australian racing industry dwarfs Great Britain’s and the overall quality of racing venues is much higher than in most parts of the world.

The Australian Racing Board is the governing body that is responsible for the sport. Every state has a Principal Racing Authority, which carries out administration work at a more localised level.

A Vast Array Of Meetings

The more you look into racing in Australia, the numbers become quite staggering. Over a quarter of a million Australians work in the racing industry. There are around four-thousand registered trainers and almost three-thousand meetings that take place each year. Close to half a billion Australian dollars are handed out in prize money, in a single year.

Major races include the Melbourne Cup, the Victoria Derby, the VRC Oaks, the Golden Slipper Stakes, the Caulfield Cup and the W S Cox Plate.

In Victoria great action can be found at Flemington, Caulfield, Sandown, Cranbourne, Mornington, Geelong, Ballarat, Bendigo, Mildura, Stony Creek, Wangaratta, Warrnambool and Moe.

In New South Wales, tracks worth a visit include Randwick, Warwick Farm, Rosehill Gardens, Canterbury Park, Hawkesbury, Gosford and Grafton. If you ever visit South Australia, check out Morphettville and Victoria Park.

In Queensland , Eagle Farm, Doomben, Gold Coast and Toowoomba are amongst the top venues. In Western Australia, Belmont Park, Ascot, Bunbury, Pinjarra, York, Geraldton, Albany, Kalgoorlie and Northam are definitely worth checking out. There is some good racing to be found in Tasmania, as well, especially at Elwick, Tasman Park and Spreyton. In the Northern Territory, Fannie Bay is also worth a visit.
