Our Club

The Carrathool Races are the epitomy of the ‘bush race’ meeting. Organised by the Carrathool Jockey Club in the small town of Carrathool, the small community of 99 friendly souls, bursts at the seams with over 2,500 excited race lovers and larrikins ready for the annual race meeting.

The Carrathool Jockey Club was established in 1883 and has been successfully carrying on the tradition of country racing in western NSW for 130 years! This is a great achievement for a small but tight-knit and hard-working community.
