Located just one mile from Junction 23 of the M6, this easily-accessible fine dual-purpose track is a mostly flat left-handed oval of around one mile and five furlongs. Highlight of Haydock's Flat season is the Group One Betfred Gold Cup while the Betfair Chase and the Blue Square Gold Cup take centre stage in the jumps season.
The course in its present form is a result of 250 years of racing tradition that is steeped in history together with modern facilities.
Left-hand course with a slightly uphill home straight of about 4 1/2f. Emphasis is very much on stamina when the going is heavy. High numbers best in sprints when the going is soft.
Left-hand oval track of 1m 5f with a run-in of 440yds. Flat galloping chase course with ten stiff drop fences, there are five hurdles per circuit which are run inside the chase course.
