The Australian Turf Club’s Warwick Farm racecourse is located in south-west Sydney around the Chipping Norton area near Liverpool.

Warwick Farm racecourse is adjacent to the George’s River and is renowned for its spacious grounds and rural atmosphere.

Warwick Farm is a major racing and training centre and now includes the Sales complex near the home turn which replaced the old Sales at Newmarket.

It is a triangular course proper with a circumference of 1937m and a home straight measuring 326m.

The Warwick Farm course underwent major design changes in the 1980s when a chute was extended along the river side of the course to allow for straight runs from 1000m to 1400m starting points to the home turn.

Warwick Farm boasts extensive training facilities that have been upgraded over the last 20 years to cater for some of Australia’s leading trainers and racing operations including the massive Godolphin stable. 

Warwick Farm came under the control of the Australian Jockey Club in 1925. During World War II the racecourse was utilised as a camp by Australian, American and British armed forces and was known as Camp Warwick and also HMS Golden Hind.

In 1950 Warwick Farm motor racing circuit was built within the racecourse borders. It became a major track and hosted the Australian Grand Prix, Australian Touring Car Championship and Tasman Series until its closure in 1973.

The track used to host major races like the Chipping Norton Stakes, Warwick Stakes and Hobartville Stakes but those races have been moved to Randwick and Rosehill. Since the merger of the Australian Jockey Club and Sydney Turf Club in 2011, Warwick Farm has been downgraded to a midweek venue.
