Wexford Course Guide

Wexford is located in the south-east corner of the country. It hosts 11 fixtures of both Flat and National Hunt racing between March and November. In 2015, the track went through the biggest change in its history, with the direction that the runners raced around the track being changed from right-handed to left-handed, resulting in the rather unique setup of the winning post being moved to beyond the spectator stands.

Timeform

An undulating, right-handed, rectangular track of under nine furlongs in extent. Although the two-furlong home straight is slightly uphill this is very much a sharp track with tight turns which favours the speedy, handy type, particularly the hurdles course which is on the inside of the chase one. There are six fences to a circuit of the chase course with only one in the finishing straight.


They only recently changed from right-handed to left-handed and while I haven’t rode around it since the change, I can see why the feedback has been good on it. They have an uphill finish now and in general it just seems a kinder track. You can get all sorts of ground there on the same day and I’d say it’s a very hard track to water, as there are a lot of undulations that would make it difficult to keep the ground uniform. The fences there were always fair.
