The first racetrack in the Alice was on the Emily plain on the East Side of town near where the Federal sports club was later established. In 1878 racing shifted to the Claypan site, west of MacDonnell siding. A track also existed in the heart of town, near where the police station now stands.

The Mount Nancy Racecourse was established in 1928, after a Royal Dedication of land was made for public recreation. The last race meeting at the Mount Nancy Racecourse was on 18 June 1977, with the last race being won by a horse called Abeson trained by Gary Curnow and ridden by Tommy Gibbs.

Racing moved to Pioneer Park on the South Stuart Highway in 1977, following the closure of the Mount Nancy Racecourse, which was on the North side of town, approximately where Head Street is now situated.

The first race meeting at Pioneer Park, just south of Heavitree Gap, was on Saturday 25 June 1977. The first race of the day was won by a horse called Cobbs, trained by Dudley McIntyre and ridden by Max Chapman.

The new Member's facility was officially opened on Saturday 24 June 2000 by The Hon. Loraine Braham, MLA Minister for Central Australia in time to coincide with the 23rd Anniversary of Racing at Pioneer Park.
