Located in South Australia' Adelaide Hills - "blue grass" Racing country - Oakbank is HOME of the Oakbank Racing Club, a Club which races just twice annually, Easter Saturday and Monday since 1876.

It has been over a century and a quarter since Tormentor won the first Great Eastern Steeple around the undulating hill course back in 1876. The race has always been run on Easter Monday except during World War 2 when the army occupied the course and it was run at Victoria Park and Morphettville.

Some great horses have completed the daunting task of winning two Great Eastern Steeples over the 4950 metre course, including Darkie (1877 and 1878), Trigger (1881 and 1884), Swordfish (1885 and 1887), Vanguard (1912 and 1914), Tramp (1913 and 1915), Mount Cooper (1926 and 1927), Club Spirit (1972 and 1974) and Light Hand (1995 and 1996).
