St Pat’s Race Club is a voluntary organisation, with NO paid employees or officers. Our sole purpose is to raise funds for local and national not-for-profit organisations such as the local Sacred Heart Primary School and Parish, Sporting clubs, G3 (meals for disadvantaged) and Mens Shed to name a few.
St Pat’s club originally commenced in 1929/30 as a gymkhana at the recreation reserve in the township of Yea. After WW2 the local race course was refurbished and in 1948/50 the gymkhana was discontinued and the St. Pat’s Race Club Yea Inc as it is today was formed.
For the past 63 years we have hosted an annual picnic race meet with a full 6 race programme which has attracted people from all over the state. We have something for everyone, from the picnicking families who enjoy the kids entertainment to the Fashions on the Field for the stylish race goer. There is a range of hospitality options available; private and corporate marquees, fine dining in the club house or take-away country food. You will want for nothing; so come and join us for an exciting and relaxing day at the races.
