Australian Horse Racing

Since Australia’s first official race meeting in 1842, horse racing has become embedded into Australian culture with thousands of races taking place each year. From the local town handicaps to the world-renowned Melbourne Cup, racing fans across the country are enthralled with the drama, excitement and passion associated with horse racing. For many horse racing is their life, with thousands of people devoting their lives to the training and breeding of quality racehorses. The Australian racing industry has produced many names which will go down in history as racing legends. Around the world, names such as Phar Lap, Makybe Diva and Bart Cummings are famous for their victories in Australian horse races.

Governed by the Australian Racing Board, the Australian horse racing industry is flourishing with over 8 major racing carnivals taking place each year including the Sydney Autumn Carnival, Sydney Spring Carnival, Brisbane Winter Carnival, Adelaide Racing Carnival, Perth Racing Carnival, Tasmanian Racing Carnival, Melbourne Autumn Carnival and the world famous Melbourne Spring Carnival.

These carnivals host some of the world’s greatest races starting with the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic and Railway Stakes in Perth to the BMW Stakes and Golden Slipper at Rosehill in Sydney to the prestigious Melbourne Cup and Australian Cup in Melbourne. From Randwick racecourse in Sydney to the breathtaking Flemington racecourse, Australia features some of the world’s most beautiful, historical and best designed racecourses.

Now with Fashions on the Field and Ladies Day races taking place, Australian races are also serving as a great social event. Not only a celebration of Thoroughbred breeding and racing, these carnivals also serve as a way for the greater community to get together to celebrate the one thing they have in common, their love for horse racing and the frivolities that take place on the day.

The other highly important aspect of Australian horse racing is the punters and their love for betting on the race. Particularly with the larger million dollar races, punters are able to access a wealth of betting markets that offer great odds and fantastic payouts if you are able to pick to the winning horses. With such tools as betting tips, daily news updates, and the Melbourne Cup field now available on sites such as this one, betting on these prestigious events is that much easier.

Races.com.au is designed to inform and educate horse racing enthusiasts in any area of the industry. Whether you enjoy betting on races, getting involved in raceday fashions or want to update your knowledge on racing history, this site has all the information you will need!

Horse racing is not just big in Australia but right around the world. In the UK horse racing is a hugely popular spectator sport and is one of the biggest sports for betting.
