A description of Haydock Park Racetrack - Gradients,Direction,Trivia, - Haydock Park Racecourse.

Haydock Park is located in the north west of England,equal distance between Liverpool and Manchester.

Like most racecourses in England,Haydock Park is a left handed circuit.

Both National Hunt and flat race meetings are hosted by Haydock Park.


The track is oval with a 1 mile 5 furlong circuit.

The flat races over 5 and 6 furlongs are straight,but longer races have a tight bend to negotiate.

Draw bias - high draw is best here up to a mile - especially in soft or heavy going.

Both tracks are almost flat,but a slight rise in gradient to the winning post requires some stamina qualities.

The north west of England tends to get more rain than other areas,so going at Haydock Park is often soft or heavy,which again needs extra stamina requirements.

The steeplechase fences at Haydock Park are stiffer than many other courses and jumping needs to be good to prevail.

Horses need to be agile to handle these tight bends - particularly over the hurdles course which is on the inside.

Despite tight bends,this is essentially a fair and galloping track.

As the name suggests,this track is set in an attractive tree lined parkland area of  127 acres.

Racing in the area many years previously,but Haydock Park racecourse was opened in 1899.

Haydock Park is one of the busiest courses in England,and race over 30 times a year hosting both flat and N.H. meetings.

Top class racing is held here,and top class facilities for viewing and dining are on offer to racegoer at Haydock Park.

The Premier Suite at Haydock Park is very popular for dining,and also the best view of the racing - but you need to book before race day to get a reservation - and also be aware that a jacket and tie must be worn to get in !.

Children are well catered for at Haydock Park with a children's play area in the Newton Enclosure - and children aged under 16,who are with adults,can get in for free.

If going with friends,or on a works outing,why not hire a private box for that VIP experience that can offer excellent service for up to 20 people.

Disabled racegoers to Haydock Park will appreciate the recent changes that will make their days racing more enjoyable.Widened doors,better viewing locations,centrally located disabled toilets,special lifts,and even Tote counters lowered so you can get your bets on easily,also if you need your carer to be with you,they can get in for free.

Arriving by car could not be easier as Haydock Park is just off the M6 motorway.

Rail travelers should alight at Warrington Central (the London - Glasgow main line),which is some way from the track,but a bus service is available.You can also get nearer to the track,if you can access the Liverpool to Manchester line,and the best place to alight is Newton Le Willows station.
