Pakenham Races

Pakenham Racecourse is located in Tynong, Victoria, at 420 Nar Nar Goon-Longwarry Road. In 2015, it moved to Tynong. There is a turf course as well as a synthetic track.

The Track

Pakenham Racecourse has a 2,400-metre-circumference track and a 480-metre-long home straight. It boasts two long straights that are well grassed and irrigated. Because of the two long sweeping curves, most starters benefit from inside barriers.


The Tracks History

The Pakenham Racing Club operates the racecourse, which was formed in 1875.

Since its foundation, the Club has updated its facilities and raised racing standards on numerous occasions.

At Pakenham Racecourse, about a hundred trainers and owner trainers prepare their horses. Most have small teams, with larger district trainers able to train at the Cranbourne training centre.

Ray Webster was the most successful trainer, winning the Melbourne Cup with Dark Felt in 1943 and the Caulfield Cup with Counsel in 1944. Another member of his squad, Nethergold, finished second in the 1959 Melbourne Cup.
