Kelso Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

Being set in the Scottish Borders, Kelso offers one of the most picturesque settings of all racecourses. Famed for its exceptionally long, uphill three furlong run-in, the course normally rides on the fast side. Marketed as Britain's friendliest racecourse, Kelso also features a golf course in the centre of the track. It provides a firm but fair test for the horses, and plenty can change up front in-running as the race unfolds up that long home straight.
