It is considered as one of the largest provincial race courses in South Australia.

Its perfect for functions other than racing including weddings, receptions, conference etc.

The track lies in an extensive lawn area where it offers the audience plenty of room to watch the races. It also features facilities like an inner grass training track and a sand galloping track.
