About Bendigo Racetrack.
Feature Race, Barriers Info & Starting Positions:
Bendigo holds 23 meetings per season and the feature race is the Bendigo Cup, which is a significant lead up race for the Melbourne Cup.
The track is an oblong shape with a back and front (final) straight of about 400m and two large turns. Races up to 1100m start in a long chute on the left which joins into the left curve at the mid point with only a small amount of cornering before the final straight.
Sticking to the rail is always the shortest route home but most runners get their chance in the straight as this wide track at Bendigo is very fair. Another chute leads into the start of the back straight and caters for starts up to 1600m. With a good long run to the first turn all horses regardless of barriers have their chance to take a position they like and then after the turn they are in the final straight. Races up to 2400m start at the beginning of the front straight and run past the finish post and grandstand before heading round the first turn and into the back straight where the 1600 chute joins the course proper.
