About Wyong Race Club
THE THRILL OF LIVE RACING SINCE 1875
“A wonderful carnival of merrymaking, drinking, feasting and dancing”
– William B. Woodbury, Wyong Race Club’s first secretary.
We’ve been growing with the local community for 150 years. Today we’re committed to playing a valuable part in the future of our Central Coast region.
WHO WE ARE
Community is at the heart of Wyong Race Club.
We’ve been part of the local Wyong community since 1875. Today we offer some of the best track and training facilities in regional New South Wales, plus a family-friendly function centre and expert catering service.
Driving the future of NSW Horse Racing.
Wyong Race Club hosts 22 annual race meetings on one of the best provincial racecourse surfaces for thoroughbred horse racing. We have also recently added a new training track – the Polytrack – to complement our existing two sand tracks. At WRC we are committed to constantly enhancing our facilities to benefit local trainers and owners.
We support our community.
Our Club partners with a variety of organisations, fundraising initiatives, and regional businesses. This partnership network has the unique opportunity to sponsor live racing events. Sponsorship is open to any businesses in our community seeking a fast-track ticket to getting noticed!
Our community supports us.
We are one of the five provincial race clubs licensed by Racing NSW. Our board, management and race day staff are supported by a network made up of members, race day sponsors, suppliers, trainers, owners, jockeys, stable staff, contractors, RNSW stewards, TAB and Sky Channel staff and local media. Our locally based caterers prepare our race day luncheons and help deliver impeccably-hosted events.
WHERE WE ARE
The Wyong Race Club, Function & Events Centre is conveniently located right near Wyong train station. We couldn’t be better serviced with regular trains from both Newcastle and Sydney. It’s less than a 5-minute stroll from Wyong train station to our entrance gates. There’s also easy access to regular bus services, local taxis and Ubers.
HEADLINE RACE DAYS
The Carlton Draught Wyong Gold Cup Carnival is the highlight of our racing calendar. Held across two days in August or September, it’s a prestigious showcase of thoroughbred racing talent. During March, we host the Wyong heat of the Polytrack Provincial Championships as it journeys to five respected Provincial tracks on its way to the Randwick final in Autumn. The Christmas festive season sees Wyong Race Club light up with an exciting trilogy of live racing events, including the popular Magic Millions Race Day.
