Welcome to the Geelong Racing Club

The Geelong Racing Club was founded in March 1865 at a public meeting at the British Hotel. The first Geelong Cup was held in 1872 over a distance of two miles and was won by Flying Scud.


In 1903 the racecourse was transferred to its present site at Breakwater where the Geelong Racing Club will host more than 45 race meetings in the 2015/2016 racing season. The Geelong Racing Club is also home to the only all-weather synthetic race track in Victoria, and races twice a week during the Winter months in addition to hosting meetings transferred from turf tracks affected by wet weather.


Gateway to Glory

The Geelong Cup is a renowned gateway to the Emirates Melbourne Cup, with a rich modern-day history seeing previous Geelong Cup winners go on to win the coveted Melbourne Cup a fortnight later.


These include Irish stayer Media Puzzle (2002), European-trained Bauer (2007), French horse Americain (2010), and fellow French stayer Dunaden completed the Geelong/Melbourne Cups double in 2011.


Following these successes, the Geelong Cup is now recognised internationally as a key lead-up race to the Melbourne Cup. The 2016 Geelong Cup will be held on Wednesday 19th October, a traditional public holiday for the City of Geelong. Tickets and Packages will be available on May 13th.
