Brisbane Racing Club

Strategic Plan

The track ahead for the Brisbane Racing Club is bright.

Our members have overwhelmingly supported the next exciting phase as we begin to unlock our master plan. This combined with the Eagle Farm track upgrade, tunnels and world class equine facilities infield places the Club in a position of sustainability and strength.

On the 14th August 1865, 149 years ago, the first race meeting was held at Eagle Farm. Thoroughbred horse racing remains part of the social fabric of Australia and has stood the test of time. However, it has not been without its challenges while some headwinds remain in the short term.

The track ahead focuses on future proofing the club while ensuring that metro racing, industry participation and the customer experience is enhanced. In unlocking this strategy, we aim to solidify our position as ‘Queensland’s flagship thoroughbred racing club’ and create a superior membership experience.

The Board and Executive are resolute in creating a sustainable future for the Brisbane Racing Club and thank its members for their patience and loyalty as we now embark on this exciting next phase.
