Southwell Race Results

Southwell is one of the busiest racecourses in the country with around fifty flat meetings on the all-weather as well as National Hunt meetings on turf. The first official Southwell race meetings took place in the mid 1800’s at Burgage Green. Racing opened on the existing site in 1897 but the most significant landmark in Southwell’s history was the opening of the all-weather track in November 1989.

Southwell is part of the All-Weather Championship season which is made up of 200 fixtures during the winter months. The climax of the series is the £1 million All-Weather Championships which are held at Lingfield at Easter. The track does not boast any major meetings but Family Fun Day in July and Ladies Day in August are always popular.

Racecourse Guide

Southwell is a left handed, oval track of a mile and a quarter with a run-in of three furlongs. There is a chute at the end of the straight for five furlong sprint races. Southwell’s all-weather used to have a fibresand surface before switching to Tapeta in 2021. Tapeta is a mixture of sand, wax and fibre which is not as deep as fibresand and therefore creates less kick-back.

Southwell’s jumps turf track is on the outside of the turf course and tends to favour speed horses on good or fast ground. However, the reverse is true in soft ground when the combination of slower ground and stiff fences puts the emphasis on stamina.

Southwell has produced several course specialists including La Estrella who retired at the age of fifteen after winning 16 races here. Tempering who won a record 22 times here. Although he raced 127 times, he only won once away from his beloved Southwell when winning his maiden on turf.

The Effect of the Draw

A low to middle draw used to have an advantage in five furlong races on fibresand but this no longer seems to apply. It is possible to come from off the pace on the Tapeta surface with no discernible draw bias.
