Queensland History of Racing

The Basics




Statistics can tell various tales but these about the Pascoe family show just how important they have been in recording the history of Queensland racing. Photographer Al Pascoe and his sons Noel and Barry have photographed racing in Brisbane for a combined more than 60 years. For more than 50 of those years a Pascoe worked for The Courier-Mail newspaper and in each recorded the racing of the day. It is estimated the family have photographed at least 4000 Queensland race meetings which equate to more than 250,000 races. Al and Barry (who died in 2004), have passed away but Noel still works each Saturday for Queensland Racing Limited. Noel's son Brett worked as a photographer for a time at the races but has since switched to other roles in racing including assistant trainer, barrier attendant and track worker. Photographs taken by the three generations of Pascoes are displayed in the media room at the Eagle Farm racecourse in Brisbane.
