Canterbury Park Racecourse Track

Canterbury is the smallest of Sydney’s four metropolitan tracks and also has the shortest straight. 

The track favours front runners and horses that sit close to the speed.

Canterbury Park Racecourse History

The first Canterbury Racecourse was created by Cornelius Prout, on his own land and was later leased by Frederick Clissold and Thomas Austen Davies who resumed racing on a new course in 1871. 

Canterbury Park Racecourse has been the birth place of many innovations in Australian racing: the first photo finish camera in 1946, the first mobile barrier stalls in Sydney in 1948, the first metropolitan racing success for a woman trainer in 1957, Sydney's first TAB meeting in 1964, and the first night racing meeting in Sydney in 1999 (despite strong local opposition to the latter).

The track is approximately 15 minutes south-west of Sydney’s city centre and is run by the Sydney Turf Club.
