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.
