Deagon Racecourse on track for major upgrade
The Deagon Racecourse is pretty much the poor cousin of Brisbane’s racing infrastructure but it is set for a much needed and long overdue redevelopment.

The planning process is expected to start later this year and Racing Queensland CEO Brendan Parnell tells Mark the potential of the site goes well beyond just racing.
