Renowned for being a progressive race club, Pakenham has been at the forefront of many advances in racing including; the first race meeting in Australia where decimal currency was used and a fact which is unknown to many that colour TV was experimented at a Pakenham race meeting on 15 June 1967. Officially colour TV came to Victoria on March the 1st 1975. The Pakenham Racing Club operates two 7-days-a-week hospitality & Entertainment venues - the Cardinia Club & Pakenham Sports Club A new chapter in will commence in 2014 when the club relocates, following the 2014 Pakenham Cup, to a new world class venue on 608 acres in Tynong.

Pakenham Racing Club

The Pakenham Racing Club was founded in 1875. Since its inception, the Club has on many occasions upgraded facilities and improved racing standards.

More than one hundred trainers and owner trainers prepare their horses at Pakenham. Most have only small teams, the bigger district trainers being permitted to train at the training complex at Cranbourne.

The most successful trainer has been Ray Webster, who won the Melbourne Cup in 1943 with Dark Felt and the Caulfield Cup in 1944 with Counsel. Nethergold, another of his team, ran second in the 1959 Melbourne Cup. He won many races during his long career, and upon retirement was honoured by the V.R.C. in being allowed to retain his badge.

The Pakenham Racing Club operates its own seven-days-a-week hospitality and Entertainment venue called the Cardinia Club.
