Overview

Country horse racing

You don't have to wait until spring each year to experience the atmosphere of a good race meet, as regional Victoria hosts racing events all the year round with turf clubs in many country towns. Head to Daylesford and the Macedon Ranges in January for the New Year's Day and Australia Day races at Hanging Rock, or see the Werribee Cup - a feature meeting of the country cups circuit.

Winter racing

During the cooler months, the Grampians region hosts flagship country race meets the Stawell Gold Cup, Mount Avoca ANZAC Day races and, later in the year, the Gunbower Gold. In north-western Victoria, look out for regular monthly races throughout winter too.

Spring fashions on the field

With much of the focus on spring racing in Victoria, there are plenty of race days across the state which give you the perfect occasion to wear your best new season tie or favourite frock. The Bendigo Cup is central Victoria's social sporting event of the year and the race runs as a Melbourne Cup qualifier. Watch horses race at one of the many clubs across the state with local races, entertainment, big screens and fashions on the field.
