Morphettville races are held at Morphettville Racecourse or Allan Scott Park as it is more commonly known locally. Morphettville Racecourse is the only horseracing track in the Adelaide metropolitan area and is home to the South Australian Jockey Club (SAJC), which has sold off its other racetrack at Cheltenham while the old Victoria Park course has been turned into a community park by the city council.
Morphettville races are held each Saturday and are well attended by visiting Victorian trainers. Always check your Adelaide racing fields and formguide to bet on Victorian trainers bringing their horses across the border.
The prizemoney in Adelaide is going to steadily improve over the next few years and betting on Adelaide races will be a very viable proposition for many punters with the influx of better class horses from Victoria.
