Flemington Racecourse, one of the most beautiful racetracks in the world, is the setting for Australia's most famous horse race, the Melbourne Cup. Flemington is renowned for its Spring racing carnivals, which is arguably the best racing festi- val of its type in the world.
Moonee Valley Racecourse has a circumference of 1,805 me- tres and the home straight is 173 metres long. It is the shortest straight in Australia. This alone makes Moonee Valley Race- course a huge advantage for front runners and on pace runners turning into the straight. It is definitely a specialist track.
The Moonee Valley Racing Club has 33 day and nights meet- ings throughout the year.
The Melbourne Racing Club (MRC) operates at both Caulfield and Sandown racecourses and holds 60 plus race meetings each year across the two locations, which accounts for almost half of all city racing in Melbourne.
The Sandown Race Track is one of the popular horse racing tracks, which is located in Springvale just 25 kms from the Melbourne city centre and to-date, it is more popularly known as the Belfair Park. This racecourse has two racetracks namely the Hillside track and the Lakeside track.
