 HAMILTON


Hamilton, in Lanarkshire, is owned by the Hamilton Park Trust, which ploughs all profits back into development of the course and its facilities. It is the closest racecourse to Glasgow so attracts decent crowds on most racedays, which take place from May to October.  There has been racing in the vicinity since 1782 with the present site in use since 1926. In 1947, Hamilton was the first British racecourse to stage evening racing and they also experimented with a morning meeting in 1971. Sprint races over 5f and 6f are run on the straight course with a right-handed loop being used for races over further and up to and including 1m4f. The draw is not that important but low numbers are generally preferred on the loop while high numbers can have a slight advantage in sprints in big fields.


The Listed Braveheart Stakes and Glasgow Stakes are the tracks most important races and trainer Mark Johnston is the one to follow in the latter. He has saddled the winner four times in the last six years. The Saints And Sinners Charity meeting in early summer tends to be popular with punters taking advantage of extended daylight hours.


Hamilton can be reached via Junction 5 of the M74 or from the M8 (follow signs for A725). It is a 10-minute walk to Hamilton West station which has regular connections to Glasgow.


Richard Fahey, William Haggas and Mark Johnston rarely waste a trip to Hamilton and Sir Mark Prescott and Alan Swinbank’s three-year-olds enjoy a good strike rate. Tim Easterby’s older horses also turn a profit with his sprinters always worth a second look.
