Muswellbrook Racecourse



Located in Upper Hunter County in New South Wales, Muswellbrook Racecourse is a popular local racecourse in Australia. It may be one of the smaller tracks but it has developed a reputation for being one of the best country tracks in the nation.

This course is 2010 metres in circumference and offers a home straight distance of 400 metres. The track has two chutes and is run clockwise. It is known as being somewhat of an unusual shape and must be drawn from the 1250 metre start.
