Pontefract Racecourse

Set in West Yorkshire, Pontefract is one of the most popular tracks in the north of England and produces many course specialists. Being a stiff, undulating two-mile track, the emphasis is firmly placed on stamina in the staying races but front runners are ideally suited to this track in sprints where an inside, low draw is important.

Pontefract Racecourse, Pontefract Park, Park Rd, Pontefract, Wakefield WF8 4QD.

The Effect of the Draw

Low numbers should do best here, purely because the course turns left all the way, but that doesn't work out in practice. Indeed, high numbers are best when the going is heavy, as the ground on the inside rail soon gets chewed up.
