A description of Towcester Racetrack - Gradients,Direction,Trivia, - Towcester Racecourse.

Towcester Racecourse is situated in the east midlands area of England.

Just National Hunt racing at Towcester with no flat meetings.

The first meeting at Towcester took place in 1928 within the scenic estate of Lord Hesketh.

This track has one of the most brutal uphill finishes to the winning post,and many horses falter on this final race to the line.

The going at Towcester,due to soil and hilly location,can often be heavy and testing,which accentuates the stamina requirements of any horse.

Run in from last fence is just 200 yards,but exciting finishes abound as horses tire on final effort to reach the winning line.


They race right handed at Towcester like most tracks in England.

The course is rectangular in shape and about 1 mile 3/4 in circumference.

The course is very stiff,but the actual fences (10 per circuit,and one water jump) are quite easy to negotiate and there are few fallers at Towcester

The stiff nature of the track,plus the tight bends make this a "horses for courses" venue,and previous winners here should always be considered before betting.

Towcester Racecourse has been greatly improved in the last few years,and provide a great day out,in beautiful countryside,for racegoers.

Those improvements also allow corporate events,exhibitions and weddings etc. to be hosted at Towcester Racecourse - details and prices from events manager.

Thanks to Lord Hesketh,they are still racing at Towcester,as the grounds and estate were sold,but he retained ownership of the racecourse.

A novel attraction,which must be unique in U.K.,is the introduction of greyhound racing at Towcester,when a new greyhound track was laid inside the racetrack in 2014,and they hold 3 meetings each week.

Disabled racing fans are welcome at Towcester,and ramps and viewing areas are all provided to make the days racing enjoyable.
