Description

Bangalore Race Track is a challenging one. It is an oval shaped, right-handed course measuring approximately 1950m with 4 sharp curves and pronounced gradients. The downhill backstretch drops 13.10m (43 feet) from 1800m to 800m and climbs 11.58m (38 feet) from the point to the winning post, with a further rise of 1.5m (five feet) from the winning post to the 1800m marker. This demanding and testing race track, with its gradients, bends and a distinct short straight, places a premium both on the speed and the endurance of the horses and the skill and experience of the jockeys. A win on the racetrack is therefore a significant achievement.

If the Bangalore Race Course is considered as one of the best in the country for the challenge it poses both to the horse and to the riders, the credit should go to the successive administrators who have wisely made use of the natural and undulating contours of the land. The Bangalore Race Course is probably the only one on the world where a limited space of barely 85 acres has been so comprehensively utilised to provide facilities such as stabling for over 1000 horses, three training tracks, an equine swimming pool, training schools, walking rings, a veterinary hospital and even an amateur riding school.
