Where is Sandown Park Racecourse?
Sandown Park is a stone's throw from Esher town centre in Surrey. It is on the A307 and easily reached from J10 of the M25 via the A3 which also connects to London.
Esher rail station is a 10-minute walk from the track with a journey time of under 40 minutes from London Waterloo.
What Is Sandown Park Famous For?
Opened in 1875, Sandown Park was the first enclosed racecourse built in the UK with only paying customers able to enter. It has staged high-class racing ever since, holding around 15 summer flat cards per year and 10 jumps meetings per year including the jumps finale in late April. Sandown has separate winning posts for hurdles and chases representing a regular source of confusion to racegoers.
Sandown Park Track Specifics
Sandown is a right-handed galloping one mile and five-furlong (2600m) oval. It has minor undulations with an uphill four-furlong (800m) run-in. It is a testing course for chasers with the three fences taken quickly in succession in the back straight known as the Railway Fences. On the flat, there is also a five-furlong (1000m) straight course rising all the way.
Biggest Meetings at Sandown Park
The Eclipse, first run in 1886, is Sandown's sole Group 1 on the flat. The one mile and two furlong (2000m) contest takes place on the first Saturday in July and can see the previous month's Derby winner take on older rivals for the first time. The two-mile (3200m) Tingle Creek Chase held on the first Saturday in December is the jumps highlight and one of five Sandown Grade 1s. Greats like Desert Orchid, Moscow Flyer, Kauto Star and Sprinter Sacre are all previous winners.
