Established in 1855, the Apsley Racing Club is now the oldest surviving racing club in Victoria - even pre-dating Australia’s iconic sporting event, the Melbourne Cup.
The next Apsley Racing Club event, the DiGiorgio Family Wines Apsley Cup Day Races, will be held on Saturday 24th March 2012 at the Edenhope Racecourse. It is a great social day, full of fun and thrilling horse racing. Everyone will love it!
