|The Donald Racecourse can be reached via the Western Highway about 180 miles North West of Melbourne in Victoria State.|
|It is known that racing took place in the vicinity of the
twon in 1850 and there are written records of a meeting taking place in December 1864.
|It was not until 1875 that the Donald Turf Club was formed and they organised their first meeting on Boxing Day 1875. The course gained its first grandstand in 1926.|
|The Club became the Donald and District Turf Club in 1963
when merging with the Corack race Club and within 15 years a further merger took place
with the Watchem and Birchip Race Clubs. The principal race is the Donald Cup which is
contested each November.
