Randwick racecourse is situated about 5 kilometres from Sydney City Centre in New South Wales and is operated by the Australian Jockey Club. It was the venue for one of the first recorded races in Australia when a Private Match took place in June 1833. By the 1840's it was firmly established as one of Australia's premier courses.
