The first race meeting was held in Wentworth on New Years Day, 1862, a picnic affair on the clay flats at the northern end of the town, near the Race Course Hotel. 150 years on and the Wentworth Races are still an important part of Sunraysia's social calendar and history.

Their one and only race meeting for the year is held on Melbourne Cup Day, the first Tuesday in November and droves of country and city folk come from near and far by plane, boat, four wheel drive and car, to enjoy the Sport of Kings with friends and family. In fact many make a long weekend out of it and enjoy the festival, which starts on Saturday and finishes well after the last race on Tuesday.
