Special Events

Horse racing is one of Australia’s most loved and watched sports with fans and punters treated to hundreds of metro and provincial race meetings every season.

As well as providing unparalleled entertainment, events like the Melbourne Cup boasting a bigger atmosphere and audience than even the football, the Australian horse racing industry also puts on many special events.

Supporting local communities and creating awareness among racegoers and spectators for a large range of charities, all of the major racing bodies in Australia host a number of special events every year.

With entire race meetings often dedicated to a particular organisation, people attending and betting on the races on these days get the opportunity to help out by taking part in events put on by the racing club such as raffles and live auctions.

Whether it is an annual charity race day at a country track such as Beaudesert or Bendigo, or a city meet dedicated to a deserving cause like those held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, these meetings provide all the top-class racing and betting action race fans crave with the added bonus of giving attendees the chance to give something back.
