About Randwick racetrack:
Characteristics: there are two tracks at Sydney’s Royal Randwick. The course proper is the largest turf racecourse in NSW with a circumference of 2227 metres, length of the home straight is 410 metres long and 28 metres wide. A large, sweeping track with a rise from the 300m mark to the winning post in the home straight, horses race in a clockwise direction. Most runners will have their chance when the rail is in the True position and the going is Good.
There is a second inner course at Randwick known as Kensington which was launched in 2013 and then closed due to poor performance. The Kensington track is currently under reconstruction and was expected to open again in 2018.
