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 State Wide Sheds 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 $150,000 in prize money.  The Boot Race runs on Sunday and is the feature race of the weekend.
