Yarra Valley Racing

Yarra Valley Racing – real country racing at it’s best. The 2013-14 season will see YVR celebrate 10 years since the successful merging of the Yarra Glen Racing Club and the Yarra Valley Harness Racing Club to create Yarra Valley Racing. In this time there has been some tremendous changes to the facilities on offer at the venue and we are eagerly anticipating the 2013-14 racing season. Yarra Valley Racing is back and racing at full capacity and after completing capital works of over $4.1 million in the past two years, patrons are sure to be amazed. Yarra Valley Racing has a strong reputation for conducting quality events and the Club is very keen to ensure that 2013-14 sees the Club back in its full glory as a fantastic racing and events venue. Located in the heart of the Yarra Valley and only an hours drive from the CBD join us for a Christmas function with lots of different dates to choose from.

In 1858 racing in the Yarra Valley commenced at a track built at Brushy Creek in an area then known as Yarra Flats.

In the 1890’s the area became known as Yarra Glen and the Yarra Glen Racing Club operated from that time.

The Club owned the freehold until 1972 when the Yarra Glen Racing Club transferred its land ownership to the Victorian Government and the Healesville Trotting Club relocated and became a co-tenant as the Yarra Glen Harness Racing Club.

In 2004 the Yarra Glen Racing Club Inc and the Yarra Valley Harness Racing Club Inc amalgamated to form Yarra Valley Racing Inc.
