The Woodford Racing Club is one of nine racing clubs in Victoria’s south-west, and has been in operation for over 120 years.
Located 9km north of Warrnambool, the settlement of Woodford hosted race meetings at its own racecourse up until World War II. At the conclusion of the war, the race track was unsuitable for racing and in a state of disrepair, and the Club has been racing at Warrnambool Racecourse ever since.
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.
A registered company pursuant to the Corporations Act comprising of a Board of 10 Directors, Country Racing Victoria represents 48 professional clubs ranging from large clubs in the outer metropolitan areas of Melbourne such as Werribee, Cranbourne and Yarra Valley to small clubs in rural areas such as Edenhope, Manangatang and Towong.
