The Races

St Pat’s is the premier race meeting in outback NSW. You can expect to see crowds of 4,000+ flock to the Broken Hill Regional Events Centre in March each year for our eight-race program, with over $100,000 in prize money up for grabs.

On track you will also find a hotly contested Fashions on the Field competition, TAB facilities, gourmet food options, as well as a variety of entertainment.

Our race day is the feature in a week-long calendar of events. From fashion parades to greyhound racing, there is something to cater for everyone.
