Racecourse Fencing Overview




We know how tough raceday is.

Our fencing systems are designed to be resilient and safe in the most demanding of conditions. That’s always been our goal.

Think Fencing has designed a range of fencing systems specific to Thoroughbred racing clubs. With safety and durability as a top priority, Think Fencing has supplied clubs in Hong Kong, Israel, New Zealand and Australia.

Horse Racing Fence Styles

Fence Optional Extras

Beer Rail

The beer rail is as the name suggests, a rail along one side of the fence to allow racegoers to rest their beer or race book whilst watching the race. This rail is usually made out of our woodgrain textured rail.

Running Rail on Top

The fence can be made with a Simtrack Running rail integrated into the top of the fence providing a seamless liniar look across the top of the fence.

Running Rail on Side

For parade rings and mounting yard applications an offset Simtrack running rail is often required to provide a safe distance from the general public to the horse. This can be customised to your specifications.


Think Fencing can provide custom gates to suit your fence design from an 8m wide sliding gate down to a 0.9m pedestrian gate.

Capture Pens

Using electronics and hardware mounted to our fencing system we can custom design capture pens for runaway horses.

Jump Wings

Think Fencing has worked closely with Racing Victoria to develop a custom solution that sets the standard in Jump Wings.

Think Fencing PVC Benefits

So you’re reasonably handy and would like to save some save money, then great news our PVC fencing is easy to install.

Despite what you may think about plastics, the PVC used to make out fences are in-fact eco friendly and completely recyclable.

Australian Made

All Think Fencing products are manufactured here in Australia at our Bellarine based manufacturing complex in Victoria.

Racecourse Fencing Full Specifications



The Pharlap style of fencing utilises a galvanised and (Dulux®) powder coated mesh panel supported by a 150mm x 50mm Bottom rail and a 88mm x 51mm Top rail. This style of fence creates a strong crowd control barrier whilst allowing maximum visibility through the mesh.



Our caviar style of fencing has been designed to offer a traditional picket fencing look. The pickets used are 38mm x 38mm and prevent enthusiastic children climbing over the fence. It uses the same top and bottom rail as the Pharlap fence.



Think Fencing has been collaborating with Simtrack since 2012 in developing the industry leading PVC Race track running rail system. Think Fencings technical knowledge and professionalism has helped us to develop this system be an industry preferred option. All PVC components are exclusively made under license by Think Fencing for Simtrack.
