Feature Race, Barriers Info & Starting Positions:
Ballarat is one of Victoria's premier country racetracks with 30 race meetings in the season, more than any other Victorian country track. Ballarat's feature race is the Sportsbet Ballarat Cup, which concludes the celebrations during the Spring Racing Carnival in late November.
Ballarat has two tracks, one inside the other, offering plenty of options for the staying distance races where they can either go round the smaller new track or sweep out round the old track while still finishing in front of the Grandstand. Sprint races up to 1200 metres can be started on the back straight of the inside track or in a chute leading into the final straight. Good in dry and wet weather conditions, the long final straight allows horses to make ground making it a very fair racecourse where leaders or swoopers can win.
