The Gundagai racecourse can be found in New South Wales and can be approached along the Hume Highway approximately 265 miles South West of Sydney. A monument of a dog on the Hume Highway is near the town and so it is known as 'The Dog that sits on the Tuckerbox'.
  Records show that racing took place in the area in 1860 although formal records suggest the first meeting was on 26th December 1899, with the main race being the Miners Purse.


The principal race is now the Snake Gully Cup held during a 2 day meeting each November. The 2008 running, worth $60,000, took place on 14th November and was won by Pink Shimmer which was owned and trained by Rooney. The 7 year old mare was ridden by Jef Penza and defeated Bomber Command and Strike Me Happy.
  In 1966 the Gundagai Race Club merged with the Adelong Race Club organising their first joint meeting on 22nd October 1966.
