Maryborough Harness Racing Club

03 5464 2451

Situated approximately two hours North-West of Melbourne, Maryborough is home to one of Victoria's premier Country Harness Racing Clubs.

The town plays host to approximately 35 day harness racing meetings during the season at the Bendigo Bank Complex, Carisbrook, a complex which is recognised for its immaculate surrounds, critically-acclaimed track and excellent public facilities. Its trademark is delectable home-style catering.

Maryborough's flagship event is the Redwood All Trotting Carnival, the most unique, popular and successful harness racing event on Victoria's provincial calendar. Back to a two day carnival , the Carnival draws visitors from throughout Australia and New Zealand. It is the nation's only event which incorporates two full days of racing exclusively for trotters.

In October, Maryborough conducts its highly successful Central Goldfields Shire Gold Cup meeting, which will be a twilight meeting.

Trials are also staged every Sunday morning from 8:45am. Admission is free and members of the public are welcome to attend.

For inquiries about race dates, programs, feature meetings or upcoming events of significance, please visit the website or contact Maryborough Harness Racing Club by telephone or email.
