RANDWICK RACECOURSE

Royal Randwick Racecourse is situated in the Eastern Suburbs in Sydney New South Wales. Randwick and Rosehill Gardens are the premier racecourses in Sydney.

Besides horseracing, Randwick Racecourse has been used as a venue for many other events including concerts and religious masses. It also appeared in several films including Mission Impossible 2.

Key Characteristics

Randwick has a circumference of 2,213 metres, with a finishing straight of 410 metres. The last 300 metres are slightly uphill making this quite a testing racecourse.

Randwick is a roomy course with sweeping bends. Big striding gallopers can stretch right out. In theory the track should give every runner a fair chance. In practice this has not been the case. A very poor wet weather track, there has been a huge amount of track bias even when only slightly rain affected. Front runners are often favoured, although depending on the rail movements next to the rails has sometimes been a slow lane.
