The Coober Pedy Racing Club was started up in 1969 with the aim of bringing together town and station people – “to make new friendships and renew old ones”

Charley Kunoth, donated the land, for the racecourse. Charlie said, “I’m not going to let you fellows have this land for nothing. I want a cent a year for it.”

For some thirty-eight years the race meeting was held over the Labour Day long weekend in October, but, as this was almost always a time of very windy, hot weather, as well as clashing with the Oysterfest at Ceduna and other events in South Australia, in 2007 it was moved to early August.
