Canterbury Park Racecards – a big Australian race track

Canterbury Park Racecourse is a popular horse racecourse based in Sydney, Australia. The location of the racecourse is roughly seven miles from the centre of Sydney, with the track located in the suburb of Canterbury and it is operated by the Australian Turf Club. If you’re looking for the latest racecards for this course, then you’ve come to the right place.

Our Australian horse race cards detail the runners that are lining up at each race in Canterbury, with a race card also providing key information such as the weight, the form, the jockey and the Canterbury betting odds which are provided by the different bookies. We recommend that you study the racecard before going ahead with your bets.

The first race meeting that ever took place at Canterbury Park was 1871 so it’s a racecourse that is steeped in history. The Sydney Turf Club resumed ownership in 1945 until 2011 when they merged with the Australian Jockey Club to become the Australian Turf Club.

Although Canterbury Park is very popular with Australian gamblers, the racecards are available to customers all over the world and many fixed-odds bookmakers in the UK and beyond are able to offer odds on the latest meetings. You can bet on the horse racing in the normal way, placing bets on win, place and each-way.

Bet on Weekday Racing Meetings at Canterbury Park

The majority of race meetings at Canterbury Park take place during the week rather than the weekend and the same can be said of sister track Warwick Farm. When it comes to weekend racing, the Australian Turf Club have Randwick and Rosehill as their two main metropolitan courses.

The Canterbury racetrack is renowned for being a tight course with stiff bends and that means that the draw that a horse receives can be important, especially for some of the shorter distance races. It’s not uncommon to see winners at big prices and punters should think carefully before backing the favourites.

The course sees the runners go clockwise making it a right-handed track, with the distance only being 1,567 metres and the home straight only measures 308 metres, with front-running horses usually suited to the course along with runners that like to race on the pace.

We might typically find a race meeting available on a Wednesday and there is often a seven-race card which might start at around 1pm local time. It’s not uncommon for the majority of races to be handicaps and the distance can be quite varied. The shorter races might be over 1,000 metres although the longer heats could be twice as long and test the stamina of the runners who are lining up.

As well as the Spring and Summer racing, you will also find night racing that takes place between October and February, with Thursday night racecards fairly commonplace and you’ll find seven races comprising each card which is great for those customers looking to enjoy tote or pool betting.
