The Northam Stakes is Run in Northam

The Northam Race Club was initially established in 1863 and its home, the Northam Racecourse, is now one of Western Australia’s premier winter racecourses. The town of Northam, where both the Race Club and Racecourse reside, is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Avon Valley. Northam is just barely an hour’s drive from Perth along the Great Eastern Highway. The racecourse itself is situated on the edge of the Mortlock River on the eastern border of the town. The Northam Racecourse hosts on average 25 race meetings per year.

Since success on the horses is directly related to information, and quality information at that. Online services should be able to furnish the serious punter with multitudes of free information, information that includes daily acceptances, online form guide and a racebook with expert commentary, current track conditions, any gear changes, scratchings, as well as trainer plus jockey history, results and performance. Access to this sort of information is crucial to any punters’ successful wagering adventure.

Northam Stakes Day

The racing season in Northam will, yet again, have the running of the Northam Toyota Stakes Day as the first major event for the year.

A great Sunday outing for the whole family, and the opportunity to see Northam and appreciate the Australian countryside.

The Northam Racing Club hosts a number of additional, and also popular racing days at the Northan racecourse. These include the AVC WA Day Cup, in June, Gannon’s Ladies Day in October, and the XXXX Gold Northam Cup, also in October. All these days are epitomised by great horse racing, high levels of horse betting, and plenty of fashion on show. All in all, a wonderful day of style and entertainment for all horseracing and fashion aficionados.
