Horse Racing

May 27, 2016

Located at the southern edge of town near Lake Marma, the Murtoa Race Course is another one of Murtoa’s historic institutions. Established in February 1879 racing has been an integral part of the town’s life for the last 120 years.

With beautifully maintained all-weather track it provides a wonderful summer and winter training and racing facility for the Wimmera region. Murtoa hosts two racing events each year.

The Murtoa Cup event, held in early October to coincide with Murtoa’s BIG Weekend, kicks off the Country Cup Race Meetings in the region. It has been a favourite Wimmera Racing event for many years and is very popular for family reunions and bus trips from around Victoria.

The Murtoa Racing Club also hosts Industry TAB meeting during July.
