Situated approximately two hours North-West of Melbourne, Maryborough is home to one of Victoria's premier Country Harness Racing Clubs.

The town plays host to 35 day harness racing meetings during the 2016/17 season at the Bendigo Bank Complex, Carisbrook, a complex which is recognised for its immaculate surrounds, critically-acclaimed track and excellent public facilities. Its trademark is delectable home-style catering.

Maryborough's flagship event is the Redwood All Trotting Carnival, the most unique, popular and successful harness racing event on Victoria's provincial calendar.

Back to a two day carnival , the Carnival draws visitors from throughout Australia and New Zealand.

It is the nation's only event which incorporates two full days of racing exclusively for trotters.

In 2016, the Redwood Carnival runs from Friday 5th August to Sunday 7th August. It commences with a Friday afternoon meeting comprising eight races.

The highlight will be the Harness Racing International Gold Bracelet, a feature race for three-year-old fillies which carries a $1,000 gold bracelet for winning connections.

Sunday will see the $75,000 Seelite Windows & Doors Victoria trotters Derby and the 30th running of the Seelite Windows & Doors Redwood Classic, a Group 1 event.

On Sunday October 23rd, 2016, Maryborough conducts its highly successful Central Goldfields Shire Gold Cup meeting, which will be a twilight meeting- check out the honour roll.

Trials are also staged every Sunday morning from 8.45am. Admission is free and members of the public are welcome to attend.
