Rosehill Racecourse Map & Barriers Guide:
About Rosehill racetrack: circumference is 2048 metres, length of the home straight is 408 metres. Racing is in a clockwise direction.
Characteristics: there are four long sweepiing turns at Rosehill, drawing an inside gate is an advantage at all starts. Difficult to lead all the way when the rail is true, but favours on pace runners when the rail is out 4 metres or more. Runners will avoid the ground near the inside rail when the track is rain affected. Regarded as a specialists track.

1400m & 1450m: Located in the back straight, inside barriers have an advantage, particularly when then rail is out.
1500m: Starts in a small chute and the end of the back straight. A fair start but majority of winners start inside barrier 11.
1750m & 1900m: Barriers are located just after the winning post on the left side of the course. Inside barriers are a distinct advantage.
2000m: Similar to the 1700m & 1900m starts, begins at the end of the chute on the left of the course. Straight run of 450m to first turn but most winners are drawn inside barrier 11.
2400m: Begins on the course proper at the top of the home straight. Barriers are of little importance due to the distance involved.
