The Roxby Downs Racing Club

The racing club was formed in 1991 and held its first unregistered meeting a year later.

The first registered meeting was in June 1994 and was attended by a very large crowd of about 2000 people.

The Club’s vision is to ensure a long-term sustainable annual race meeting to:

  • Establish a unique race meeting that becomes a major event on the State’s social calendar
  • Provide an entertaining and enjoyable day for patrons/community of Roxby Downs
