BRIGHTON


Owned by Northern Racing and located on Whitehawk Hill, on the edge of the South Downs, Brighton racecourse is approximately a mile and a quarter from the centre of the famous seaside resort and within easy reach of the A27 Brighton by-pass and the A270 Lewes Road. Wilson Avenue, which connects East Brighton Park to Warren Road, actually crosses the horseshoe-shaped course around the halfway point, approximately 6f from the finish and before the runners enter the half-mile home straight. The entrance to the track is about a mile from the sea itself and a courtesy bus operates from just outside Brighton Station on race days.


Racing at Brighton can be traced back to 1713 but the first official meeting was in 1783 when the Prince Of Wales, later to become King George IV, was an important patron and is reputed to be one of those responsible for the invention of hurdle racing, though the track only stages Flat racing nowadays between April and October. Low numbers used to have an advantage in sprints but that only seems to apply to fast ground now with jockeys usually electing to track across the stands rail when soft features in the going report.


The track’s main meeting is the three-day Festival Of Racing in early August which features the Brighton Mile Challenge Trophy, a Class 4 handicap. Only one three-year-old has won the race since its inception in 2003 and every other winner has carried at least 9st1lb so take note of older horses near the head of the weights.
In more run-of-the-mill contests, runners from the stables of Mark Johnston, Richard Hannon and Alan Bailey are usually worth a second look and Andrew Balding’s three-year-olds tend to do well.
