The Dederang Racecourse is situated in the Kiewa Valley at North East Victoria on the Dederang Recreation Reserve in Victoria State. Whilst records are sketchy, it is known that racing did take place in the area around 1855.
  The first recorded meeting was in 1865 and the judges box was a horse and cart. Such was the organisation at that first meeting that the judge missed the end of a race and declared it a dead heat. That first racecourse was owned by William Steel and house on his own land. Racing moved to its current site in 1887.


The Club is now known as the Dederang Picnic Race Club and hosts one meeting annually on the first Saturday in January.
  The principal race is the Dederang Cup contested each January. In the 2009 running Roy's Legacy won in the hands of Raymond Douglas.
