About

The Bedgerabong Picnic Race Club is a member of the NSW Picnic Racing Association. We are registered with Racing NSW which enables us to access all the services associated with thoroughbred racing in NSW.

Club History

The name Bedgerabong is derived from the aboriginal Badjarri Bong which literally translates to a place of good water. The spelling of the village name has been at the centre of some controversy for many years with numerous variations used since the community was established in the 1800’s … Badjarribong, Bedgerebong, Bedgerabong …

smh-bedgerabong-races-1923The Bedgerabong Picnic Race Club was established in 1919 with a handful of local volunteers from the Bedgerabong community decided to run an amateur thoroughbred horse race meeting. Race meetings were held on a number of local properties before it found is home at the current location for the Boxing Day 1933 Race Meeting and continues to race there today. Here is an excerpt from the Sydney Morning Herald (Friday 4 May 1923) with the results of the races!

Our Club, has an Executive Team and Committee of more than 50 volunteers. This is quite unique and shows the wonderful community spirit that still exists in Bedgerabong, along with many other small country towns in New South Wales.
