Horse Racing in Australia

Horse racing is an important spectator sport in Australia. Thoroughbred horse racing has proven to be particularly popular over the years and gambling on horse racing has wagered billions of Australian dollars with both the Totalisator Agency Board (TAB) and bookmakers collectively.

There are two variations of Thoroughbred horse racing in Australia, which include flat racing and hurdle racing in South Australia and Victoria. It is the third most attended spectator sport in Australia behind the rugby league and Australian rules football.

Internationally, Australia has more racecourses than all the other nations, with it being second to the United States of America for the number of horses that start in races each year. On a similar level of success, Australia comes third after the United States of America and Japan for the prize money amount that is given each year.

There has been growing public interest in Thoroughbred racing in Australia particularly during the foremost autumn and spring racing carnivals which have been growing in recent years, with more than 100,000 attracted to the Victoria Derby, the Melbourne Cup and the VRC Oaks race meetings. Major attractions also include The Caulfield Cup, the WS Cox Plate and the Golden Slipper Stakes.
