Richmond Race Club was established in 1955 and has since stamped its importance in the New South Wales greyhound racing history books. It is the premier provincial greyhound racing club in NSW, located just over 60 minutes west of Sydney’s CBD, with the race club conducting over 120 greyhound race meetings per year.
Richmond races on a loam surface over distances 330m, 400m, 535m, 618m and 717m on both Wednesday and Friday evening with entry free for both meetings. The Race Club has quite extensive hospitality facilities with sweeping panoramic views of the tight turning Richmond track which has a circumference of only 357m.
RICHMOND KEY RACES
Richmond plays host to several feature race events throughout the year, with the major events on the calendar the Richmond Derby and Richmond Oaks taking place during March. The Richmond Riches races over 535m in May also draws a number of high quality chasers.
RICHMOND TRACK RECORDS
Richmond holds track records over a total of five race distances; 330m, 400m, 535m, 618m and 717m. All of these are still active distances today. A list of the Richmond track records can be found below;

NOTABLE PAST WINNERS AT RICHMOND
Richmond might not quite hold the same honour roll as some of other more prestigious tracks over the country, but the track has still produced superstars over the years. Arguably the most famous Greyhound to win at Richmond is Feral Franky – a winner of 24 races and a greyhound who missed a placing only twice in his 44 career starts. Feral Franky won several races at Richmond to go along with his Group success elsewhere.
RICHMOND BOX STATISTICS
Over the years, Box 1 has proven to be by far the most successful trap for greyhounds racing at Richmond, most likely due to the narrow circumference of the track. The box has generally performed between 18-22% strike rate in recent years. Despite the narrow circumference, the rest of the boxes have played relatively even, with no discernable difference between Boxes 2 through 7.
