Turffontein Racecourse

Turffontein Racecourse is a horse-racing track in West Turffontein, Johannesburg South, South Africa. It opened in 1887, at the Turf Club St.

History of Turffontein Racecourse

1887 – The racecourse was founded at Turffontein, Gauteng, by the Johannesburg Turf Club.

1893 – The foundation of the original grandstands.

1897 – Gold was discovered deep beneath the racecourse, and mining operations began 1.5 km below the surface. Racing continued throughout the mining, far above the miners at work.

1899 to 1902 – Turffontein Racecourse also made South African history books for its involvement in the South African War from 1899 to 1902. The racecourse was closed to make space for the Transvaal’s largest concentration camp. More than 5,000 Boer women and children were imprisoned.

2007 – The racetrack was set to become a night racing venue. It had undergone a major refurbishment, including installing floodlights, renewing the existing trackside facilities, and opening a sports bar after Newmarket Racecourse in Johannesburg was sold to local businesspeople in early 2007.

2016 – In July 2016, Turffontein Racecourse was declared a heritage site by the Johannesburg Heritage Foundation.
