Salisbury Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

Widely regarded as an ideal track for the leading stables to introduce their better prospects, it is therefore unsurprising that this attractive racecourse pulls in the crowds. Although meetings are spread between May and October, there is a heavy leaning towards fixtures during the summer and the two evening meetings are particular favourites amongst the locals. Salisbury hosts relatively short distance races where the maximum trip will be 1m1f.

The Effect of the Draw

High numbers are definitely best in straight races when the ground is fast, but there's not much in it on softer going. Concentrate on the top eight stalls in straight races with more than sixteen runners on fast ground.
