The Kilcoy Racecourse is kikuyu grassed and has a track circumference of 1270-metres with a home straight of 143-metres long. This is a very short home straight and suits front runners or horses near the lead. The course has tight turns making inside barriers an advantage for most starts.
Races are run over six (6) distances – 800m, 1060m, 1200m, 1500m, 1900m and 2000m. Treat yourself to a Race Day, enjoy the food, the company and of course the Race itself.
