Members of the Carbine Club are bonded by a couple of simple but very significant affections: for sport and for good fellowship. It has always been that way. Those sentiments were the essence of its foundation in 1961, and the spread of its associated clubs around Australia and internationally.
The club's name honours a racehorse, one of the greatest and bravest this nation has ever known. But the Spirit of the Carbine Club extends far beyond the boundaries of the turf, and even of championship. It is a spirit, which celebrates sporting endeavour ... and thus recognises that winning is important, but grace and courage also matter.
