Sandown racecourse is one of four main racecourses in Melbourne and is based in the suburb of Springvale. It had a major upgrade in 1999 and is now a lovely course to visit. The racecourse is now split into two.

This is about the Lakeside Track.

Key Characteristics

The Lakeside course at Sandown racecourse is a wide track with a steep rise to the winning post so takes a bit of getting, the course actually rises nearly a metre from the 400M pole to the finish. The course circumference is 1857M with a finishing straight of 407M. When the rail is true and the ground is good then horses can make all, however when it gets wetter it is definitely a closers track. It is definitely a track for specialists so look for course form.
