As the only sand-based country TAB track in South Australia, Port Augusta thoroughbred racing offers patrons a unique and exciting race day experience.

The Port Augusta Race Club is located only 5 minutes from the CBD and 30 minutes from the popular Flinders Ranges.

If you haven't been to the races for a while, this is the day to attend as the course has been transformed with new viewing areas perfect for catching up with friends.
