The Seymour Racing Club course proper is 1800m in circumference and is made up of rye grass. One of Seymour’s biggest attributes is its 1300m chute which has a straight run to the home turn. The course also has a 1600m and a 2200m chute. Seymour also boasts excellent training facilities, with three training tracks as well as access to the course proper. The training tracks consist of two sand tracks, one for fast and one for slow work, and a synthetic track for galloping. The Club also has a newly installed 50m equine swimming pool.
The Seymour Racing Club will undergo a large refurbishment after the 2015 Seymour Cup. This refurbishment will see the track extended a further five metres, taking it to 23 metres wide. The Club will cease to race until the 2016 Seymour Cup. To download the Seymour Racecourse Masterplan, please click here.
Trainers & Owners
The Seymour Racing Club is home to some 40 trainers who train anywhere between one to thirty horses. Currently the Club sees more than 100 horses trained each morning, Seymour hopes to increase this number.
Seymour Racing Club owners’ facilities have recently seen a large refurbishment. On racedays owners and trainers can take advantage of the new roomy owners room, watching the race day action on screen while relaxing in comfort.
All owners upon production of their owners card will receive free admission to the course on all weekday race meetings. Only owners with a horse engaged to race will receive the same privileges at weekend meetings (including Seymour Cup).

The Seymour Racing Club currently has nine committee members:
President - Steve Clifton
Vice President - Gerard O'Sullivan
Treasurer - Peter Barry
Commencing immediately after the 2015 Seymour Cup, the course proper will undergo a complete reconstruction and widening. This will mean that we will not be racing for approximately 12 months. We anticipate that our first race meeting on the new track will be the Seymour Cup meeting in October 2016. Due to there being no race meetings between November 2015 and September 2016 membership will be offered for a period of 2 years rather than the normal annual period, at the annual cost of $100 or $550 (corporate).
Corporate Membership with the Seymour Racing Club gives you the benefit of belonging to one of Victoria's most vibrant race clubs, while enjoying its outstanding facilities with some of your most valued clients.
