Hello all
Can anyone please recommend some guides or resources which explain Australian horse racing .
For example, which races qualify for other races.  Why enter a horse in this race and not that. Winter/summer racing vs autumn/spring racing? Obviously im a noob but thoroughly enjoy all aspects of thoroughbred racing, not just the betting side,  so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

I am not sure of any specific publication with the information that you require, plus conditions are always changing anyway, I would think if you are looking for race conditions, i.e. what races are exempt from ballot on other races, if you go to the specific race club that holds the race in question, I would think they would have the race conditions listed under the Race itself, not being an owner for a long time, this has never come up as a priority for me
Our best racing is in the Spring and Autumn,
Summer and Winter racing is down considerably in class on Spring and Autumn but nonetheless is still quite strong, we have many layers of racing in Australia and it is a 7 day a week industry
apart from the obvious carnivals we start with Picnic racing which is for the lowest quality horses
Then
Country racing which is racing well away from the major cities
Then
Provincial, which is out of the city but not far away
Then
Midweek City class
and at the top tier Saturday metro class

Then another way to divide the class up is by state, NSW and Victoria are by far the stronger states with very little between them if any, with a good gap to QLD/Western Australia then South Australia and finally the Northern territory

Hope that helps a little

What am I thinking, I just remembered, years ago each state would put out a racing Calendar, not sure if they still do that, maybe you could contact the ATC in NSW and ask them, then go to their counterpart in each state

As Dave has mentioned, racing is administered within the various states rather than nationally.

Might be an idea to just focus on one state such as NSW to start off with. Racing NSW provide a wonderful website - they produced a manual a couple of years ago which might be a good starting point for you: https://www.racingnsw.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/RNSW-reference-guide.pdf

All the best.
