The country racetrack at Hay is situated some 475 miles South West of Sydney in New South Wales and can be approached along the Western Highway.
  The earliest recorded meeting at the track was in 1859, although this was not held at the present day site, and the Hay Jockey Club formed shortly afterwards and by 1870 had established the principal race of the Corinthians Cup.


During the Second World War the course was taken over by the Government and prisoners of war were held at the track. Racing resumed in 1947.
  The present site of the racecourse at Hay Showground was first used for races in 1938.
