Aspendale Racecourse opened on 14 April 1891. It was established by James Robert Crooke, horse trainer, who named the course after Aspen, one of his best horses who won the Newmarket Handicap twice, in 1880 and 1881.
The track was situated east of the current Aspendale railway station and is believed to have been one mile (1.6 km) in length.
Robert Crooke was also a motoring enthusiast. In 1904, the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria held its first automobile demonstration at Aspendale Park. In 1906 a motor raceway was constructed, Australia’s "first commercial track", although only one meeting was ever held and the circuit fell into disuse. A banked track was constructed in 1923, but it had fallen into disuse again by 1930. The circuit was briefly revived again after the Depression but it had stopped again prior to World War II.
The last recorded horse race at Aspendale Park was on 29 July 1931. Motor racing continued until the late 1940s. The area is now residential housing.
