Gilgandra Racecourse is renowned as being one of the best wet weather tracks west of the Blue Mountains. Managed by the Gilgandra Jockey Club, horse races are run over 800, 1000, 1100, 1200, 1300, 1600, 1850 and 2400m.
The feature racing event in the Gilgandra horse racing calendar is the running of the Gilgandra Cup.
Comments The track has a slight dip between 100m and 800m, and a slight rise in the straight. As the straight is only 200m in length, winners usually are positioned close to the leaders coming and into the straight. Inside barriers are of upmost importance at all starts, with the exception of the 1300m start, where inside barriers represent a slight advantage.
Circumference 1663 metres
Length of Straight 200 metres
