Kelso is the home of National Hunt racing in the Scottish Borders and was voted 'Britain's Friendliest Racecourse' in a national newspaper survey.
The Morebattle Hurdle in January and the Borders National in March are the top two races at a track that is left-handed and is famed for its long, uphill three furlong run-in. The course lies to the north of the town off the A6089 and the A699.
The hurdle track is a tight left-hand oval circuit of one mile 300yds with five hurdles to jump, the chase course with nine fences is one mile 600yds. There is a long run-in of 440yds.
