Sapphire Coast Turf Club


One Night Stays Merimbula.


Get Ready for our Annual Sportsmans Dinner with guest speaker Rodney RM Quinn Click Here 

Quinn, 53, has won in excess of 2000 races and was regularly called upon by trainers John Hawkes and then Peter Snowden to ride horses for the giant Ingham, and later Darley operation.

He partnered the champ Lonhro on seven occasions for six wins and a second; their victories including Group Two events, the Stan Fox Stakes, the Royal Sovereign Stakes and the Hobartville Stakes.

Quinn’s major race wins included the Group 1-Sydney Cup (Stand to Gain 2011), the Gr 1-Spring Champion Stakes (Doctor Doom 2011), the Gr 1-The BMW (Grand Zulu 2004) and the Gr 1-Mercedes Classic (Curata Storm 2002).

He also won the Gr 1-Sires’ Produce Stakes and Gr 1-Champagne Stakes on Viscount for the Ingham’s Woodlands Stud. Quinn went out on a high note, scoring at his last ever ride aboard Merlin Mustang at Rosehill Gardens on 1 July 2013.

Sapphire Coast Turf Club is located on a picturesque 300 acre site on Sapphire Coast Drive at Kalaru, between Merimbula and Bega and Tathra. It is one of the newest and most modern country racecourses in NSW with great spectator facilities. Patrons can enjoy an unobstructed view of the racing action from most parts of the course including the Members Reserve and Function Centre and from the large, banked lawn areas.

We hold ten race meetings during the season with jockeys and trainers coming from all over south eastern NSW and East Gippsland to compete.

Our new facilities include a Function Centre which is perfect for weddings as well as race day functions. The course offers visitors and members a variety of services including

  • TAB
  • Local and Interstate Bookmakers
  • Food and beverage services
  • Free buses to and from the course from major local centres
  • Picnic and family friendly areas

There are plenty of good reasons to go racing so why not visit Sapphire Coast Turf Club soon.
