Racing NSW wants to add the Goulburn racetrack to its extensive industry-related real estate portfolio, The Straight can reveal.

In a continuation of an almost decade-long push into the NSW property market to acquire crucial racing assets, a potential sale of the racecourse will be a key topic for discussion at a Goulburn Race Club (GRC) members’ meeting on Monday night.

The meeting will provide details on how a Racing NSW acquisition would unfold ahead of a membership vote on April 2 to decide the racetrack’s future.

It comes after a recent announcement that Goulburn has been slated to receive $9.5 million in funding allocated for a new stable complex that can accommodate up to 80 horses.

It is not clear if that funding is contingent on the members' approval of the Racing NSW proposal.

“It will be an information-only meeting for members and a presentation will be made,” GRC chief executive Robyn Fife, told The Straight.

Fife said she was hoping a Racing NSW representative would attend the meeting to answer questions from members.
