Brighton racecourse

Perched above the town just two miles from the outside and with a well-positioned view of the sea, the track stages flat races of up to about one and a half miles.

Right-handed oval track of one mile three furlongs. The five furlongs course is uphill and is a very stiff test, especially for 2yo. High numbers best in races up to one mile.
