Key Characteristics

The Musselburgh course is a large galloping track of 14 furlongs circumference with a 2.5 Furlong run in. Races shorter than a mile are normally run on the straight course. Nowadays the ground in the straight drains quicker than the rest of the course so going descriptions can vary. The racing surface was re-laid during the redevelopment of 2005, together with the course configuration being altered slightly. This re-configuration and relatively short run-in has meant that prominent racers have been favoured.
