THE APHRC STORY
The Albion Park Harness Racing Club has celebrated over 40 years in racing history, having commenced in September 1968. The venue is only a stone’s throw from Brisbane's CBD located closely to some of the city’s more affluent suburbs.
The Paceway is an aggregation of 23 individual titles providing for a total area exceeding 17 hectares.
The original 800m right-handed track was positioned inside the unique sand galloping track and the Albion Park Trotting Club became a tenant of the Brisbane Amateur Turf Club, which ran thoroughbred racing at Doomben and Albion Park.
Albion Park has been used for gallops racing for approximately 100 years before the last meeting was held on 30 December 1981 when the galloping venue was closed and the Racing Minister of the time declared a new complex would be built and harness racing would "graduate" to a 1000m left-handed track with a brand new grandstand.
As such another milestone was established when the complex was unveiled to a huge crowd in October 1983 and Albion Park was dubbed "the speed pacing capital of Australia".
The Albion Park Harness Racing Club has hosted several Inter Dominions: 1972 (Welcome Advice); 1977 (Stanley Rio); 1986 (Village Kid); 1993 (Jack Morris); 2001 (Yulestar) and 2009 (Mr Feelgood).
History was created in 2001 when the Club conducted the trotters' series for the first time with Take A Moment capturing the Grand Final.
The Club's founding chairman is Sir Clive Uhr and others to serve in the prestigious post include Sir Lloyd Rees, Peter Burge, Kevin Seymour, Kevin Bengston, Bob Lette, Dave Knudsen, Warwick Stansfield and current chairman David Fowler.
Albion Park Harness Racing Club plays host to Harness Racing “The Trots” on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturday nights. For more information about the Club and Harness Racing, please visit our website, www.aphrc.com.au.
