Course Description


Lingfield racecourse is located in the heart of the Surrey countryside and very easily accessible from central London by train or car.There is not just racing at this venue: Lingfield also boasts an 18 hole championship golf course and a leisure club. The course can cater for every need from race day hospitality, conferences, weddings, sponsorship and much more!Lingfield racecourse is one of the oldest established racecourses in the UK, having celebrated its centenary in 1990.The all weather track is triangular and 1 mile 2 furlongs in length. It has some undulations. The straight run in is only 2 furlongs long.The track is sharp with not very well defined turns and also has a distinct camber. It is common for horses tracking the leader on the inside to be severely hampered on the final turn.In 2001 the old Equitrack surface was replaced with a brand new type of material – Polytrack. The new Polytrack surface has very little kickback compared to the old Equitrack surface and is thus now more popular with trainers.Low drawn horses used to have an advantage for all distances upto and including 10f. But the Polytrack surface has put an end to this as the strip nearest the far rail is often slower than the rest of the track.
