&quot;A Heritage Victoria recommendation not to include the race-course on the State's Heritage Register has been upheld after an appeal to the Heritage Council.
The Heritage Council said there were already sites on the register recognising the Chirnside's involvement in racing. It found that the racecourse had been used continuously for race meetings since 1874 but there were earlier races held elsewhere.
The council said the racecourse had local significance and was covered by the Wyndham Council's Heritage Overlay. Sites and buildings on the heritage overlay cannot be changed without a permit. - Wyndham Leader 25 Aug 2009. p.7

The State Government, Racing Victoria Ltd and Country Racing Victoria on friday announced $1.4M for the new International Horse Centre at the racecourse, including 3 stabling compounds for up to 28 horses. It will be ready by next year's Spring Racing Carnival. - Wyndham Leader 25 Aug 2009. p.7
