About Eagle Farm racetrack:
Circumference is 2027 metres, length of the home straight is 434 metres. Four wide turns. Horses race in a clockwise direction.
Characteristics: a large course with no sharp turns, very fair for all runners. Not known as a leaders track, winners tend to run on from behind the leading division in the home straight.
Eagle Farm Barriers Starting Positions:
1000m: Begins at the back of a chute off the course proper on the right hand side of the course. Runners are on a long turn leading into the home straight, inside barriers are an advantage.
1200m: Starts at the back of the course just before a turn. The majority of winners are drawn inside barrier 12.
1300, 1400m & 1500m: With a long straight run down the back of the course to the first turn, barriers are of little importance.
1600m: Begins in a small chute off the back of the course proper. Straight run of around 550m to the first turn, barriers are not important.
1800m: Located just after the winning post on the left hand side of the track. Long turn into the back straight, inside barriers are a slight advantage.
2100m & 2200m: Barriers are placed in the home straight before the winning post. Because of the distance involved, barriers are of no importance.
2400m: Runners must complete a full circuit of the course from this start, barriers are of no importance.
3200m: Only one race over this distance every year, the Brisbane Cup. In recent years winners have started from inside barriers, but this may be coincidental.
