A principal race at the track is the Wyndham Cup which was a very valuable race when run in 1896.
  It was in 1912 that administration of the races was taken over by the Werribee Race Club. It developed the facilities at the course, including grandstand and paddock amenities. Although the course was used for the War racing did resume in 1947 and has as its main race the Werribee Cup which is contested each October.
