not all race tracks run counter-clockwise , Brands Hatch, Mallory Park, and I think Donington Park are examples that run clockwise . No they can be set up to run either way .

Why do they race horses clockwise in Australia?

Horses are raced both clockwise and counterclockwise in Australia. The decision to run horses counterclockwise in the US dates to the American Revolution era. In 1780, the first circular US race track was established by William Whitley near his home in Lincoln County, Kentucky. A staunch supporter of the Revolution, Whitley insisted that horses race counterclockwise, as opposed to clockwise as was the custom at the time in England. Some but not all American tracks followed the change immediately. Belmont was run clockwise from its opening until 1921. Today about 30% to 40% of English horse racing is now counterclockwise like all horse racing in the US.
