Links & Information:

Riverside Racecourse was established in 1946 after relocating from the old Showground Racecourse. Being entirely level, with an 1800m rounded square circumference, a long sweeping home turn and a 400m straight, Riverside Racecourse is regarded as the track 'Where every horse gets its chance', making it popular with trainers and punters alike.

Racing Gunnedah style is best described as a giant garden party with masses of white (marquees, tables and chairs) set atop a lush green lawn backdrop.

The Gunnedah Jockey Club conducts its Gold Cup Meeting every year in May and hosts its very popular Christmas Hams Meeting in early December, which provides local businesses with an opportunity to host their staff Christmas functions at the races. In addition, the Gunnedah Jockey Club conducts the Somerton Cup Meeting in January, the Boggabri Cup Meeting in Feb/March, the Curlewis Cup Meeting in June and the Manilla Cup Meeting in October. All meetings are covered by the TAB and Sky Racing Channel.

The Gunnedah Jockey Club has a rich history, with the district producing many fine horseman, racehorses and racing administrators.

Horses such as Gunsynd (bred on a farm outside Gunnedah), Akzwazoff (a three time Gunnedah Cup winner), and Trainers such as Keith Swan, Arthur Gore, Greg Hickman and Administrator/Breeders such as the legendary John Clift have all graced Gunnedah's Riverside Racecourse.

Gunnedah's very central location, between the Hunter & North West, Western and Central Racing Districts, results in capacity fields and competitive racing.
