Sandown Racecourse


Sandown Racecourse

Managed by Melbourne Racing Club, Sandown Racecourse is also called Sportingbet Park, Sandown Raceway, William Hill Park, Ladbrokes Park and known locally as simply, Sandown.

Sandown is the only thoroughbred racecourse in Australia with two race tracks. In 2001 the Club built a second track, Hillside, around the outside of the existing Lakeside track.

Sandown is also an entertainment complex situated 25 kilometres from the city along the Princes Highway.

Horse Racecourse


Featuring a dual horse racing circuit with the individual tracks known as Lakeside and Hillside. Sandown's premier horse race day is the Sandown Classic meeting, also featuring the Sandown Guineas, which concludes the Spring Racing Carnival in Melbourne.

The racing surface at Sandown is widely recognised by industry and punters alike as one of the best in Australia. With both tracks featuring wide turns and front straights, and a gradual rise from the 200m mark to the finishing post, every runner gets a chance.

Motor Circuit


Built in the early 60’s, Sandown's Motor Circuit has long stood as the premium car racing circuit in Melbourne. The Motor Circuit is 3.1km in circumference, and features 13 turns.

Home to the Sandown 500 Endurance Race V8 Supercar event in mid September each year, the motor circuit is one of the very few permanent circuits left anywhere in the world located right in the middle of a large metropolitan city.

Function Rooms


Sandown offers a wide range of different facilities, rooms and areas available for hire. Located on the ground level of the Grandstand, the Multi-Purpose Room is the perfect facility for your next conference or trade show event. Equipped with ceiling high double door for large vehicle entry, two main bars, capacity for over 1000 people.

Quarantine Station


Operated by Racing Victoria Ltd (RVL), the Sandown Quarantine station was originally built in 1997. Due to the increasing demand of International horses entered in the Spring Racing Carnival, an extra station was added in 2001.

Some of the world's finest thoroughbreds have passed through the Quarantine as part of internationally acclaimed Spring Racing Carnival. Names such of the past such as Vintage Crop and Vinnie Roe, and in 2006 the two Japanese horses Delta Blues (3rd in Caulfield Cup & winner of the Melbourne Cup) and Pop Rock (2nd in Melb Cup) are notable achievers who called Sandown their temporary home.
