Sandown Racecourse, also known as Ladbrokes Park, is located near the suburb of Springvale in Melbourne’s south-east, approximately 25km from the Melbourne city centre. The Melbourne Racing Club, which also oversees racing at Caulfield and Mornington, is in charge of organising racing at Sandown. The majority of meetings at Sandown Racecourse take place on Wednesdays.
The Sandown Racecourse is home to two horse racing circuits, one known as “Sandown Hillside” and the other called “Sandown Lakeside”. Not just home to horse racing action, the Sandown Racecourse also features a motor racing circuit on the outside of the horse track, referred to as Sandown Raceway. In addition, Sandown Park is a Greyhound racing venue, located to the south-west on the other side of Lightwood Road.
