Albury Race Club was formerly known as the Albury Jockey Club in 1855 before it disbanded and returned on January 21st, 1881 as the Albury Race Club. The club had gone through many transformations yet their present grandstand still stands since 1974.
Their time-honoured Albury Gold Cup was officially elevated to Listed status in 2011 for the 2012 racing season and in 2014 Albury Racing Club won the Country Race Club of the Year award.
Fun Fact: In 1845, a lady by the name of Jean Spalding had a silver cup with the Albury Cup of 1845 inscribed on it. This is believed to be the first cup trophy ever given for an Australian horse race, and this is a key part of their long and colourful history.
Albury Club has one Listed race, the famous Albury Gold Cup over the 2000m in March each year.
