Ballarat Turf Club is located 115km west of Melbourne and is one of Victoria’s oldest and most famous racing clubs.

Ballarat Turf Club was formed in 1853 when racing was held at the nearby Rosehill course. Racing remained at Rosehill for almost 100 years until a transfer to the Dowling Forest racecourse, the current home of the Ballarat Turf Club.

Dowling Forest was the site of the first race meetings conducted by the Victorian Amateur Turf Club in 1875 before that club transferred its meetings to Caulfield in Melbourne.

Ballarat Turf Club conducts 27 race meetings each season with the highlight being the Ballarat Cup meeting in November at the end of the Victorian spring racing carnival....
