Canterbury Park Racecourse is situated in the Sydney suburb of Canterbury close to the Canterbury railway station. It is one of only two racetracks in Australia, the other being Moonee Valley, which has floodlights to allow racing at night.

Canterbury has one main grandstand which includes quality seating, dining and corporate facilities.

Key Characteristics

Canterbury Park racecourse is very much a specialist racecourse. Being only 1580 metres all the way round it is extremely tight, and horses are on the turn throughout. The tightness coupled with the extremely short run-in mean that unless you have a horse who races prominently you can forget it. Barrier position, together with being able to start quickly are also massively important, you obviously need a barrier position on the inside.
