Cluden Park: Home to Townsville’s Racing Scene
Cluden Park have a long-standing tradition of premier horse racing, with our first race meet held in 1874. Since then, our facility has become the home of more than 36 race meets each year. Each race is nationally and internationally broadcast by our longstanding partner SKY.
As one of Australia's major provincial race clubs, we host the Townsville Cup, North Queensland Amateur Raceday and Pallarenda Stakes. Each event attracts first-class industry talent to our region every year.
The club is supported by extensive infrastructure and a premier horse racing network. With more than 100 horses training at the facility at any given time, 86 licensed trainers and more than 830 owners in the region, we have the strongest facility in the region.
