The ideal setting for sure in which to host some first class racing and with 32 racedays to choose from throughout the year there is plenty of scope for enjoying Haydock races.

Whether for the National Hunt fixtures, the flat races or simply for a great day out and exciting experience accompanied by superb drinks and dining opportunities, there is something for everyone at Haydock.

There are true racing highlights in both flat and jump fixtures at Haydock. Renowned for its three mile chases during the National Hunt season, the most significant of these is the Gold Cup, held each year in February.

The flat race highlight at the course is the Group 1 Race, Stanleybet Sprint Cup. Run in November, the Sprint Cup is one of 5 sprint races held here and on the continent, and they are keenly contested to crown the Champion Sprinter of Europe.

Haydock races are run over a long oval track covering a mile and 5 furlongs. The tough drop jumps and flat track favour long-striding gallopers and with a 5 furlong run in after the final water jump and open ditch, good stamina is essential especially when the going is soft. The course offers classic and thrilling National Hunt racing, often with exciting, close finishes and is regarded as ideal preparation for the Grand National at Aintree and Cheltenham Gold Cup.

A selection of different environments at Haydock Park offer racegoers ample choice depending on their budget and requirements. The Premier Enclosure offers all the style and sophistication which has become synonymous with fine racing over the years while the County Stand offers a more informal option but with all the facilities in place for a great day at the races. If a vibrant party atmosphere is more to your tastes then Tattersalls Stand is the place to be, while for family fun days, the Newton Stand may be more appropriate.
