Warwick Farm Racecourse

Warwick Farm Racecourse is a metropolitan race track in New South Wales. The most notable Warwick Farm race is the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes run during the Autumn Carnival.



Warwick Farm Racecourse is located 30km from the Sydney GPO and hosts 15 meeting each year including the autumn and spring racing carnivals.

The racecourse was purchased by the AJC in 1922 and held its first race in 1925 in front of a crowd of 25,000 people. The racetrack is 1,937 metres in circumference and has a 326 metre straight. It is considered a tight track with a sharp turn near the 1200 metre marks. As a result, front runners tend to do well and the horses from behind must run very wide. The racecourse grounds also features one sand and two grass training tracks.
