Uttoxeter Racecourse Guide

Uttoxeter in Staffordshire races on 25 days of the year and is the only racecourse in the county.

The fences are not especially arduous with speed and fatigue rather than the fences causing horses to fall.

It is a speedy track when the going is good, however when it rains a stayer is needed as the course takes on a different demeanour.

Speedy horses can overrace when the going is good and are picked off by those with reserved energy on the run-in.

Taking the inside line is the choice of most jockeys, however, the back straight being wider can give an advantage at the next turn.

Uttoxeter’s location means it attracts horses from the north and south generally leading to decent-sized fields and competitive racing, you generally see a good race at the course.

Uttoxeter Highlights

The Midlands Grand National is a great race as it tends to attract horses who have swerved the Cheltenham Festival handicaps specifically for this £70k race.

David Pipe won the race 4 times between 2011 to 2014 with different horses. Notably, trainers like to book good claimers to take off a few lbs and as the race is over 4 miles those lbs can make all the difference. A claiming jockey has won the race 8 times in the last 20 years.

The other notable Uttoxeter race is the Listed Summer Cup run in late June. Because the ground is normally decent at this time of the year you get a fast run chase, with the lead changing hands on numerous occasions.

Uttoxeter also holds a range of Class 2 and 3 handicaps both over hurdles and fences.
