Winter Racing

The Club’s next race meeting will be held on Wednesday 10 May. Wednesday is an unusual day on which the Club races but it replaces a Sunday meeting in July 2016 which was a poor performing day.

This particular date in May 2017 provided the only ideal opportunity to replace the day for the 2016/2017 schedule without losing a day from Canberra’s 25 race meeting schedule.

Canberra stars Winter campaign - Single Gaze and Fell Swoop Update

Single Gaze has returned to the winners stall, saluting in a courageous win at Doomben on Saturday 22 April 2017, in the Mandate Tails Listed over 1600m. The win takes her earnings to just over $1.2 million.

Nick Olive now has the mare working her way back to a Group 1 start, and is nominated to run in the Group 2 A.D. Hollindale Stakes on the Gold Coast.this Saturday. “The horse is doing sensational on the Gold Coast” Olive said. “She will have a gallop on Tuesday morning, but she is absolutely thriving”. Olive hopes to start the 4yo in the Group 1 Doomben Cup on 20 May.

After showing his class in a very easy trial at Goulburn, Fell Swoop is primed for his trip north to Murwillumbah next week, on the gateway to the Qld border to prepare for his start in the Group 1 Doomben 10000 on 13 May. “Everything is on track to head up and we will keep him ticking over nicely” trainer Matt Dale said.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Vale Jim Munro


The Club was saddened to hear of the passing of Jim Munro on Friday 7 April. Jim was an avid supporter of thoroughbred racing and the Canberra Racing Club with his recognisable gray and orange striped colours and horses sharing in the name “time” trained by Gratz Vella.
