A Guide to Wincanton Race Course

A Guide To Wincanton Race Course

Wincanton racecourse is located in Somerset, England and is owned by the Jockey Club Racecourses company.

The venue hosts Hurdle and National Hunt races throughout the Winter and features the Kingwell Hurdle in February. Horses that perform at the race usually go on to do well in the Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.

The track is located near to the yard of Paul Nicholls so you tend to see a lot of his stable running at Wincanton.

The course is rectangular in shape with rounded edge to give relatively sharp corners. It is a left handed (anti clockwise) track measuring 1 mile and 3 furlongs in length which is quite tight.

The fences at Wincanton can be tricky and have found out many horses in the past. The National Hunt course has 9 fences including two open ditches and a water jump. The final three fences on the home straight are very close together and can easily catch both horse and jockey.

The Hurdles course has 5 fences on the main circuit and an additional fence placed on a spur which joins the main circuit on the far side.

Bullet Points

  • Left handed course
  • Difficult fences
  • Course length of 1 mile and 3 furlongs
  • Very fast course
