A Guide to Nottingham Race Course

A Guide To Nottingham Race Course

Nottingham in England has one of the oldest racecourses in use in the United Kingdom. Records going  back to 1773 show that it was given a Royal Plate race in that time. Nottingham ran both National Hunt and Flat racing until 1996 when it abandoned the former and concentrated on being a Flat Racing venue.

The course hosts three Listed Races. The Kilvington Stakes is open to fillies and mares aged 3 years or older. It is run over a distance of 6 furlongs and 18 yards. The other race is the Further Flight Stakes. This is contested over 1 mile and 6 furlongs by horses aged four years or older. These tow races are run in May and  April respectively.

The other race is run in June. The Nottinghamshire Oaks is raced between horses that are aged four years or older over a course that is 1 mile, 2 furlongs and 50 yards in length.

Nottingham hosts about 23 fixtures per year.

The Nottingham racetrack is actually two tracks in one. They are both around 1 mile and 4 furlongs in length, but the inner track is used Spring and Autumn, whilst the outer track is used  in the Summer.

The inner track is left handed and has a 5 furlong straight. The outer track is also left hand but has a slightly longer straight, measuring up at 6 furlongs.

Bullet Points

  • Both tracks are left handed
  • The inner track has a five furlong straight
  • The outer track has a six furlong straight
  • The courses a relatively flat with minor undulations
