Welcome back to The Goss!

In today’s episode, we talk about Australia’s most dangerous horse racing club!

Yes, the Wallabadah Jockey Club has closed down after 169 years of operation.

Race organizers have concluded that its race track no longer meets NSW’s horse racing standards.

This is because of the race track’s terrain – it has up hills and down hills, with a nine-metre decline towards the home stretch. A perfect recipe for horse racing disasters, isn’t it?

Join us as we talk about the rich history of Australian horse racing and how we think it has become so commercialised.
