Scottish Harness Racing Club

The Scottish Harness Racing Club (SHRC) is primarily tasked with promoting fixtures at Scotland's sole hard track, Corbiewood Stadium, Bannockburn, which holds the majority of race meetings throughout the harness racing season in Scotland.

The club is member-run, with a number of meetings held during the course of the year to vote on decisions which affect club members.  An appointed committee is responsible for the day-to-day running of the race meetings.

Membership is open to all, regardless of whether you are an owner, trainer, driver, bookmaker or spectator, and you do not need to reside in Scotland.  Membership fees are £10 for individuals and £15 for couples.  The benefits of membership include concessions on race entry fees, eligibility for SHRC monthly and annual awards and also eligibility for certain events at Corbiewood (e.g. the Oakwood Stud Mares Pacing Series).


Corbiewood Stadium offers American-style harness racing on a regular basis between May and November. The facility boasts a café, bar with seating area and glass-fronted viewing area overlooking the racetrack, and on-course bookmakers.

Spectators can expect to see top equine athletes at close proximity with pre-race parades and the winner's enclosure located directly in front of the main viewing area.

Brief History

Harness racing has made its home at Corbiewood since 1966, when the gates first opened to spectators.  Over the years the track has changed hands many times and its other purposes, such as greyhound racing, have ceased to exist; however, harness racing remains.  In 2016, Corbiewood celebrated its Golden Anniversary, making it the longest running harness racing venue in the UK, and even welcomed visitors from Australia at the two day celebratory festival.
