About Us
About MVRC

The Valley is the historic home of Australia's most prestigious horse race, the William Hill  Cox Plate.

It's considered Melbourne's most appealing spectator racecourse, offering an exciting, up-close and personal entertainment experience like no other. Established in 1883, Moonee Valley has enjoyed a rich and vibrant history of thoroughbred horse racing at its unique amphitheatre track and was the first Australian metropolitan track to conduct night racing.


Moonee Valley Racing Club is committed to maintaining high standards of excellence in racing and customer service. Each race meeting offers premium racing, entertainment and enjoyment throughout the year and during the spring racing carnival. Our aim is to engage and excite our members and visitors about day and night racing at The Valley.
