There are reports the racing at Sedgefield has been taking place since the 1730s but it was not until aristocrat Ralph Lambton made the area, part of the Sands Hall estate, headquarters of his hunt meets in 1804 that any form of organisation came to the course. Regular meetings began in County Durham in 1846 but Sedgefield is still something of a work in progress even now, though giant strides have been made in the last 20 years to bring facilities up to modern standards.

The course, operated by Northern Racing, is set in open countryside but only seven miles from Teesside and eight miles from Darlington, near the junction of the A689 and A177 and accessible from Junction 60 of the A1 (M). The nearest railway stations are Stockton and Darlington, the latter being on the East Coast main line.

Left-handed and sharp in nature, Sedgefield is undulating with an uphill finish. Handy types tend to best around its bends.  The Durham National, staged at the April evening meeting, is the track’s big race of the season but the course stages fixtures every month except June and July, though it can suffer from extremes of going and the quality sometimes suffers as a result.

Peter Bowen and Chris Grant’s hurdlers tend to do well while Malcolm Jefferson’s chasers are also worth following, especially those that have already run well at the course over hurdles.
