A description of Wolverhampton Racetrack - Gradients,Direction,Trivia, - Wolverhampton Racecourse.
Wolverhampton Racecourse is located near Wolverhampton in the west midlands of England.
Like most English tracks,they race left handed at Wolverhampton.
The deep sand surface was removed in 2014 and Wolverhampton Racecourse was the first English track to use the Tapeta option.
Like all,all weather tracks,Wolverhampton track is perfectly flat.
Draw bias - only very slight,but low numbers have an advantage over 5 and 6 furlongs,and big fields of over 10 runners will show,again,just a slight low draw advantage.
Very short run in of just over 200 yards to winning post.
The Tapeta surface was an improvement,but making up lost ground,or finishing late is difficult on Tapeta,and course winners,and jockeys,who ride here regularly,should be followed when considering a bet.
Wolverhampton Racecourse circuit is just 1 mile in circumference.
Small circuit makes the bends quite tight and your selection needs to be nippy to negotiate the bends and sprint for winning line up the short straight.
Wolverhampton Racecourse was the first track in England to hold evening floodlit horse racing.
The track held its first race meeting here (Dunstall Park) in 1887,but horse racing was taking place at nearby West Park over 200 years ago.
National Hunt fixtures were very popular at Wolverhampton Racecourse until the all weather surface was laid,and there is just flat racing here now.
Older locals still refer to Wolverhampton Racecourse as Dunstall Park,which is the area of Wolverhampton that track is situated.
Again,older local racegoers ( like myself) will fondly remember summer evening festival meetings at Dunstall Park on grass,when huge crowds used to visit - in contrast to the meagre attendancies the insipid all weather fixtures attract.
This track is the most similar to the American dirt racetrack you will find anywhere in the U.K.
