Brighton Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

Brighton racecourse is set at the top of the south-east coastal town and has wonderful views of the surrounding area. A quirky track, it is in the shape of a horse shoe, is about 1m4f in length and has some undulations, providing a unique test for the horses.

The Effect of the Draw

There is no real draw bias, except maybe on really soft ground when very low numbers are at a slight disadvantage as the runners tend to head for the stand rail.
