Terang Racecourse is a pleasant country track situated in Western Victoria about 30 miles North East of Warrnambool and can be approached via the Princes Highway.
  It is known that racing first took place at Terang in 1859, although at a different location to todays meetings. By 1868 the Terang Racing Club was formed and the racing action moved to the present site on the Keilambete Road.

The course holds flat racing and steeplechase racing with separate courses set out for each.


A feature race at the track is the Peter Blank Sprint contested each New Years Day. It celebrates the achievements of a horse called Peter Blank which won a sprint at the track on 5 consecutive occasions between 1949 and 1954.
  In 1982 the Terang & District Racing Club was established, being a merger of Terang, Hampden, Garvoc and Cobden Turf Clubs.
