A Guide to Musselburgh Race Course

Overview

Racing has taken place a Musselburgh in Scotland since 1816. It is the second biggest racecourse in Scotland after Ayr but due to its location on the East Coast where temperatures are more stable the course has a reputation as being able to facilitate racing when other meetings are called off.

The course offers both Flat racing and National Hunt meetings and stages around 28 fixtures per year.

In June each year Musselburgh hosts its feature races  – the Edinburgh Castle Stakes and the Scottish Sprint Cup. The former is a short sprint over 5 furlongs for two year old horses whilst the latter runs over the same distance but is for older horses.

The course is a right handed elongated oval that is almost flat with sharp bends at either end that measures in at 1 mile and 2 furlongs. The Hurdle course has six fences to jump, whilst the Chase track has eight fences, two of which are open ditches.
