Australia has over 60 group one races in 2022, and The Roar has you covered with a complete state-by-state guide to every one of them. Here is your complete guide to Australia’s horse racing calendar for 2022.

Horse Racing in Australia happens nearly every single day of the year, but Group 1 races are the pinnacle of the sport, that come with more prize money and fame for winning.

They are headlined by the Melbourne Cup, run at Flemington on the first Tuesday in November every year.
