The course is based in the small town of Oadby in Leicestershire and has held racing events since 1773. It plays host to both national hunt and flat racing on its right handed oval shaped two mile track which has a run in of four and half furlongs. The final three furlongs can prove to be a tough test on a horses stamina as the field gradually climbs.
The course hosts over 30 horse racing meetings throughout the year, one of the more notable meetings held here is the Leicestershire Stakes which is listed event.
Several of the leading flat trainers including Sir Michael Stoute will use this course to debut their best two years olds and trainers Mark Johnson and John Dunlop do well as do jockeys Jamie Spencer and Ted Durcan.
High numbers do particularly well here on straight races, in large fields of 20 or more runners go for horses that are drawn above 11.
