Randwick Racecourse is a racecourse for horseracing in the Eastern Suburbs in Sydney, New South Wales. Randwick Racecourse, is operated by the Australian Jockey Club and formally known as Royal Randwick and known to many Sydney racegoers as headquarters. The racecourse is located approximately 6 km from the Sydney Central Business District in the suburb of Randwick.

Venue

Besides horseracing, Randwick Racecourse has been used as a venue for many other events including concerts and religious masses.

The Rolling Stones played at Randwick on their 1973 Pacific Tour. In 1970, Pope Paul VI celebrated mass at Randwick as part of his pastoral visit to Australia. The Racecourse was also the site of a mass held by Pope John Paul II in 1995 for the Beatification ceremony of Australia's first potential saint Mary MacKillop.

It will also be the site of the vigil and final mass at the conclusion of the XXIII World Youth Day in July 2008.

Racing will have to be stopped for several weeks, due to the alterations needed to hold over 400,000 people.

This move had been opposed by the Randwick Trainers Association, which holds lease interests over some areas intended to be used for the event.

The dispute has since been resolved, by the federal government and the state government jointly pledging $40 million as reimbursment to the racing industry.

The famous racecourse has also appeared in several films, including Mission: Impossible II. (Wikipedia).
