Australia Races Live
Australian racecourses are split into 3 district classifications: Metropolitan, Provincial and Country racetracks.
Metropolitans tracks are home to big group races and are the most popular racecourses normally located to the big cities including Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane.
Provincial races are one often located near to cities and towns but that don’t have the size and facilities to attract the top horses and race meeting whilst Country races are located near to smaller towns and settlements and are just of interest to locals.
For European based fans, it is the major Metropolitan racecourses that are covered by bookies, with many races available to watch live online.
100% Legal Live Streams

The streams that we feature here on GGTV are offered by bookmakers who have paid for the rights to bring you live horse racing action, so you can watch races that you have bet on.

Watch Racing From Australia
Whilst horse racing in Australia often goes overlooked by British and European racing fans, aside from the Melbourne Cup of course, but that is a huge shame as it is one of the countries in the world offering not just high quality racing but a high quantity of race meetings throughout the year.
Horse racing is the country has a long history going back to soon after the first Europeans settled in the country and now offers over 350 racecourses that are in the akin well equipped with starting gates, phot finish cameras and automatic totalizators (or tote board) to give fans in attendance all of the key information.
With so many racetracks spread across the country it will come as no surprise that horse racing is one of the leading spectator sports in Australia with only Rugby League, the dominant football code and sport in the country, eclipsing it.
There are more racecourses in Australia than any other nation and it is second only to the United States of America in terms of the number of horse racing and registered to race and it is also third in terms of the amount of prize money offered throughout the year coming behind only the USA and Japan.
Horse racing in the country is under the control of the Australian Racing Board, with each state own Principal Racing Authority aboding by the laws and rules set down by them. These rules are set out in the Australian Rules of Racing which helps to keep the racing and standards consistent across all of the Australian states.
Whilst racing in Australia takes place through the calendar year in Australian, the main race season is usually thought of as been in spring and autumn when the main racing carnivals, race festivals, take place.
Amongst the biggest meetings of the Australian racing calendar are the Melbourne Cup, the Victoria Derby and the VRC Oaks whilst standout races include the Golden Slipper Stakes (a group 1 race for 2 year olds run over 1,200 metres and held at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney), the Caulfield Cup (A group 1 handicap race for horse aged 3 and over run over 2,400 metres at the Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne) and the W S Cox Plate ( group 1 race run over 2,040 metres by horses aged 3 and over at the Moonee Valley Racecourse in Melbourne).
With no horses native to the Australian continent, it was mostly from the breeding stock of South African racehorses that the developing sport relied on in the early days when the former slave ship the Lady Penrhyn brought a stallion, a colt, three mares and two fillies from Cape Town.
Of course it didn’t take long for the country to start producing their own race stock and their own bloodlines and now Aussie racehorses are exported around the world as leading race hordes, especially to America, where Australian horses have enjoyed huge amount of success.
Australian horses and jockeys lead an international life with many working across Asia as well as at home, especially in the likes of Singapore, Japan and South Korea whilst many now make the trip to Dubai and even Europe on regular occasions.
