Windsor – A Guide To Flat Racecourses

Windsor Racecourse

Windsor Racecourse is a tight, flat right handed track. It is a figure of eight shaped course, the only flat turf track in the UK currently in operation with these specific characteristics. It is also known as a switchback track as in some races over a specific distance, depending on where they start, sees the horses go from right to left before turning to the right again in the home straight.

The circuit is about eleven furlongs in circumference and is listed as a grade three course. Three pattern races take place throughout the year, two listed races for three years old and older, and one group three event,  again, for three year olds and older horses. It is a popular venue amongst racegoers, and they often hold race meetings on a Monday evening during the summer months.

Horses that can demonstrate an ability to perform well here in the past are marked up accordingly in the betting markets when returning to this venue but with good reason, it’s a tricky and quirky track, unique, and therefore takes a horse with specific traits to run well.

So don’t be surprised to see horses who have previously shown good form at the track but appear to be out of form on recent evidence then find their groove all of sudden when racing back on this course.
