A Guide to Warwick Race Course

A Guide To Warwick Race Course

Until 2014 Warwick racecourse used to run both National Hunt races and Flat racing. Since then the venue has been exclusively used for jump racing, and now has around 25 meetings a year.

Warwicks prestigious races are all run in January and February – the Leamington Novices Hurdle, the Classic Chase and the Kingmaker Novices Chase. All three of these races are open to horses aged five and over. The Kingmaker Chase is also used as a barometer as to how well a horse would run in the Arkle.

The course is set up in a Q shape, with the main circuit measuring 1 mile and 6 furlongs. The course is left handed and generally flat apart from one section that has a steep climb before gradually fading into the back straight.

Some of the bends are quite tight.

The back straight is regarding as tricky due to the number of fences along it that come at you pretty quickly. On the Jumps course there are five fences on that straight including an open ditch. In total there are 10 fences on the course. On the Hurdles course there are six.

Bullet Points

  • Left handed track
  • Circuit distance is 1 mile and 6 furlongs.
  • 10 fences including two open ditches on the jumps course
  • Relatively flat apart from one section
  • Suits front runners
