Australian Turf Club

Racing first began at Randwick racecourse in 1833, and in May 1840 the Australian Racing Committee was formed to govern racing, and by January 1842 the Australian Jockey Club was an entity and the Homebush Course was the headquarters of racing in NSW before it moved back to Randwick in 1860. In 1922 the Australian Jockey Club purchased the Warwick Farm course and undertook a number of improvements. The first meeting under the AJC was held on January 27th, 1925 with 25,000 people in attendance.

The Australian Jockey Club (AJC) and the Sydney Turf Club (STC) officially merged in February 2011 to form a new Sydney racing club, the Australian Turf Club (ATC) and commenced racing on Monday 7th February in New South Wales.

The NSW Government secured a $174million funding package to redevelop Randwick racecourse ($150M) along with improvements to Rosehill Gardens ($24Million).
