About Race Club

"From Murweh Heritage Trail: Horse racing was a popular pastime in the early days. Country Races were often held on stations with station horses doubling as race horses as early the late 1800’s. The first official race meeting was held at the Augathella Racecourse on the 17th May 1947 to raise money to build the Memorial Hall (Shire Hall). Horse owners were invited to a paddock to race their horses. First prize was £3 and second prize was £1 for each race "
