About Scone Racetrack.
Feature Race, Barriers Info & Starting Positions:
Scone holds 16 meetings per season and their feature races are in May when the Scone Cup Carnival is held over two days on Friday and Saturday. The Saturday meeting is held as Sydney’s metropolitan meeting for the day, Scone was the first country club to have a meeting of this type in 2011. The current racecourse was constructed in 1994 and regarded as the best country circuit in New South Wales.
The track is an oblong shape with a back and front (final) straight of about 400m and two turns. Races up to 1100m start in a long chute on the right which joins into the curve at the mid point with only a small amount of cornering before the final straight.
Another chute leads into the start of the back straight and caters for starts up to 1700m. 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 2200m start in the front straight running past the finish post and grandstand before heading into the back where the 1700 chute joins the course proper. Inside barriers are generally an advantage here but most runners will get their chance in the home straight.
