Sandown is one of the busiest and best racecourses in the country. By the end of 2004 it will have staged 26 fixtures and nearly all will have been of a very good standard.
Sandown is one of the best viewing tracks in the country with the whole course in sight from the Grandstand, although, and it can be tricky working out just what is happening on the sprint course.
Sandown’s main national hunt fixture is the Tingle Creek Chase over two miles in December and it is the most important race of its kind outside the Cheltenham Festival. The Esher course also holds the Betfair Gold Cup as part of an excellent finale to the season in April.
The Coral-Eclipse is the course’s best flat race and while Sandown does not have that many evening fixtures as compared to some other venues in and around London, it does stage the best meeting of its kind in the shape of the Brigadier Gerard Stakes in late May or early June.
