Gawler racecourse is located just 50km north of Adelaide and is at the gateway to South Australia’s famous Barossa Valley.
Gawler racecourse is the home of the Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club and hosts 16 midweek and Sunday race meetings annually including the Gawler Cup in
Gawler is a thriving township on the edge of the renowned Barossa Valley and is within easy reach of Adelaide as it is located on a main railway route with its own dedicated station.
Horse racing began in Gawler in the 1840s and in those early years hosted South Australia’s principal race meeting over three days.
The current Gawler racecourse was established in the 1880s and the Gawler race club was founded in 1891.
During the Second World War all Gawler meetings were allocated to Victoria Park or Morphettville racecourses due to the military taking over the Gawler racecourse as a camp.
In 1960 the South Australian Licensed Victualler’s Racing Club and Barossa Racing Clubs combined to race as Barossa Valley Racing Club and they eventually amalgamated with Gawler Jockey Club to become the Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club in 1971.
In 1977 the Kadina & Wallaroo Jockey Club also amalgamated with the Gawler & Barossa Jockey Club.
Gawler Jockey Club was classified as a legal metropolitan club from 1936 until 1967. It became a provincial club in 1968.
There are two special memorials at the Gawler racecourse as the Melbourne Cup Winners Gold and Black and Galilee were laid to rest at the course.
The circular Gawler turf course is 1840 metres in circumference and has a home straight of 300 metres in length.
The Gawler track caters for races over distances from1000m to 2200m and one starting chute for races over 1600m.
The Gawler course is constantly turning from all starting points and has a tricky home turn before the short straight. Horses drawn inside gates have a distinct advantage over all distances.
Gawler racecourse underwent a major redevelopment that was completed in 2010.
The redevelopment included construction of a new course proper that extended the home straight from 220 metres to 300 metres.
New grass training and sand training track were also constructed inside the course proper.
The old grandstand was also replaced with a new purpose-built race day and function centre.
