Kyneton Park Woodend Cup

NMIT Woodend Cup at Kyneton Park

Situated within a couple of kilometers of the picturesque Campaspe River, a region of Australia resplendent with botanical gardens and historic houses and great bluestone architecture, the Kyneton Park Racecourse is one of the great attractions in the region.

The Kyneton Park Racecourse, and home to the Woodend Cup, is a circle with a 1616m circumference and a 250m home straight. With the circular shape, turning circuits and well graded straights and turns, the track provides good, fast horse racing. The track is interesting to punters and trainers in that it has a considerably short straight, which normally gives an advantage to those horses who like to race very close to the race lead. The course itself is fully irrigated and drained with loam. Considering most seasonal circumstances, the track retains its great racing conditions for the majority of the year. These technical conditions are worth knowing about when one is using internet access to place wagers on many of these excellently organised and publicised events.

The Kyneton Park Details

Kyneton Park Racecourse is under the management of the Kynton District Racing Club, and 15 to 16 race meetings are conducted annually at the track. The Kyneton District Racing Club joined forces with the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE to use the racecourse facilities as a training ground during 2009, and has functioned as such since then. Every year, events held at this racecourse such as the Woodend Cup, attract around 30 000 spectators and punters to the district. The normal field limits for the races held in Kyneton are 12 for the 1,450m events and 14 in the other events. One of the major race events held at the Kyneton Park Racecourse is the Woodend Cup that is run over 1450m.

The Woodend Cup is a celebration at Kyneton Park every year. Woodend Cup day is punted as ‘Nothing but Good Times’ and is celebrated with keen punters, Hens and Bucks parties, and, in fact the day contains an exciting 7 race program with live music playing on the public lawn between races.

With Kyneton Park being barely an hour’s drive from Melbourne, Bendigo, Ballarat and Seymour and having shuttle busses to meet Melbourne and Bendigo trains at Kyneton station for the short 5min trip to the racecourse, access to the Woodend Cup at Kyneton Park may be easy via the online sports books, but it is also very convenient in a brick and mortar context too.
