The Casterton Racing Club is a racing club steeped in tradition, and we’re considered to be the oldest sporting club in Casterton District, and are the only club in Australia to have a live hedge steeplechase on its own course. By having this live hedge steeplechase, patrons witness a fantastic spectacle and horses and jockey experience how jumps racing should be!
The Casterton Racecourse itself is set in a natural amphitheatre with rolling hills all around and boundaries of local rivers and it would rate highly as the most picturesque club around. Casterton Racing Club ran its first open hurdle race on February 26th, 1861 and was run over 1.5 miles. The first steeple race was run here on 14 May 1862, which was called the Great Western Steeplechase and run over 4 miles.
We host three meetings annually with the Casterton Cup in May, the Heywood Cup in July and a spring meeting in September. We welcome you to experience Country Racing at its best, here at the Casterton Racing Club.
