Event Information

The Wellington Boot has become one of the biggest and most popular country race meetings this side of the great divide, drawing in visitors from all over to enjoy a spectacular day of country racing. 

‘The Boot’, as it is known to locals, has attracted a number of celebrity visitors since it began in 1981 including former Miss World Belinda Green, Getaway star Catriona Rowntree, Scott Cam, and Bryan Brown.

A number of races are held over the two great days, but is the iconic Hermitage Hill Wellington Boot Race which really captures the crowd’s attention.  The exciting open two-year-old race is held over 1100 metres with a whopping $200,000 in prize money.  The Boot Race runs on Sunday and is the feature race of the weekend.

Terms & Conditions


Under the NSW Government’s Covid-19 regulations, events at Wellington Racecourse are currently restricted to a limited number people as determined by the Government, with strict social distancing rules applied.

We are very hopeful that by March 2021 the crowd restriction will have been eased significantly or lifted all together.

However, numbers at the 2021 Wellington Boot will be strictly enforced according to the Government’s directions.

With limited tickets available to guarantee a place at the 2021 Wellington Boot, it is important to buy your tickets early to secure your place on course for this iconic NSW race meeting.

Hopefully, the crowd limits will be increased as the Covid-19 situation improves and we will keep you informed should this occur.

Unless required to by law NO REFUND OR EXCHANGE will be given except for in the unlikely circumstances of cancellation of the event by the organiser. Refund liability is limited to the total amount of the Ticket purchase (including any fees or charges). The seller is not liable for expenses incurred as a result of the cancellation.
