The Willaura Cup was conceived when an old bookie’s bag containing memorabilia from the former Willaura Racing Club was given to the Ararat Turf Club. The event remembers those formerly involved in the Willaura Racing Club, which was disbanded in 1964, and the families and friends of committee members, trainers, jockeys and race horse owners who were involved with the club.
Enjoy all country racing has to offer at one of Victoria's premier race tracks located in the heartland of Victoria's Thoroughbred Country in an intimate setting, with sweeping views of the course. Get up close and personal with jockey’s and trainers from all over the state, whilst enjoying all of the racing action right from the Mounting Yard to the Winning Post at your leisure.
