Welcome to Port Augusta Thoroughbred Racing!
Since 1881 the Port Augusta Racing Club has provided the region with quality thoroughbred racing on its iconic sand track. The Port Augusta Racing Club hosts 9 race meets and is home to more than 12 trainers. Race days are a great social event for everyone to enjoy, fantastic entertainment for all the family, and racing hospitality at its best.
Port Augusta’s central location sees it as the heart of thoroughbred racing in the Spencer Gulf, and its facilities make it a premier site for racing. With the majestic Flinders Ranges as the backdrop to the Port Augusta racecourse, it has become famous for its breathtaking view.
The Port Augusta Race Club is located only 5 minutes from the CBD and 30 minutes from the popular Flinders Ranges.
We support many local community groups and promote a day at the races to visitors both statewide and interstate. Full catering, with tote facilities and book makers on course, a day at the races has something for all the family.
Thousands flock to the annual City of Port Augusta Cup in July which is always a day of great of racing, fashion and fun. Port Augusta’s mild winter weather and fantastic location make this a much anticipated social event.
There’s nothing like a flutter in the Flinders!
