Victoria's most western racecourse, the picturesque Edenhope racecourse is ideally located on Apsley Road, only 1km from the township. Established in 1935, the Edenhope Race Cub hosts one major race meeting each year on the Saturday of the March labour day long weekend, the James H Greenhill Edenhope Cup. The Cup meeting draws crowds in excess of 1000 every year and has become an important annual social event for the local community.
The Edenhope Cup provides all that is expected of a country cup race meeting. The racecourse is compact and offers excellent facilities, including air-conditioned bar/luncheon room, plenty of shade and seating and good toilet facilities. There are full TAB facilities, a full program of seven races including the James H Greenhill Edenhope Cup, bookmakers, Fashions on the Field, live music and children’s entertainment. This year we have the Edenhope FoodWorks Grand Marquee, a fully catered private marquee (with outdoor area) for patrons. Go online and purchase your tickets now! What a great Christmas idea for the person who you just don't know what to buy!!!! There are umbrella and marquee packages available, dining room meals and marquee catering.
The course has a NO BYO policy but alcohol on course is available and reasonably priced.
Country racing plays a prominent role in the heart and soul of Victoria. When you hear the thundering hoofs of the thoroughbred meet the fresh country turf, racing truly comes alive.
