John Bennett purchased a vast portion of Rosehill to build a racetrack and amusement facility. Construction began in 1883 and was finished in April 1885 for a total cost of £12,000.

The Sydney Turf Club operated Rosehill Gardens Racecourse from 1943 to 2011. The Sydney Turf Club and the Australian Jockey Club merged in 2011 to form the Australian Turf Club. Rosehill Gardens Racecourse is currently owned and operated by the Australian Turf Club.
