Morphettville

MORPHETTVILLE

Morphettville Racecourse is South Australia’s largest and premier race track and plays host to up to 70 days of racing action throughout the year.

Located less than 10km from the Adelaide CBD, Morphettville’s race meetings are split between its two tracks; the Morphettville course proper and the Morphettville Parks circuit.

The Parks was official opened in June 2009 and being the inside circuit it has a smaller diameter and is narrower than the course proper.

The SAJC created a world first when installing a retractable winning post with hydraulics that enables the flexibility to alternate the running of races with minimal damage to both tracks. 

History

After years of using Victoria Park which was rented from the Adelaide City Council, the SAJC acquired its own freehold property at Morphettville and held its first meeting there on January 3, 1876. Under the leadership of Sir John Morphett, the SAJC held Morphettville's first meeting in 1875 and the first race was won by "Red Gauntlet" owned by Hon. Thomas Elder, who had been instrumental in the creation of Morphettville racecourse.
