Belmont Park Racecourse
Along with Ascot Racecourse, Belmont Park Racecourse is one of the two main tracks in Perth. As well as being from the same city, these tracks are within a stone's throw of each other along the bank of the Swan River.
If it were a battle between which track had the better position, Belmont Park would just win. It is located just across the river from the CBD, with spectators at the venue afforded views of the majestic Swan as well as the Perth skyline.
Belmont Park is Perth's winter racecourse, and annually hosts a handful of Group 3 races including the Belmont Sprint and Hyperion Stakes. Bookmark this page to get Belmont tips when these big racing events are on.
Whether you are doing your own form or taking Belmont tips it still pays to understand the track traits.
Belmont Park Racecourse has a circumference of 1,699 metres and a straight of 333 metres, both of which are on the short side for a metropolitan race track. Because of this, the two bends are fairly tight-turning, meaning that barriers can be decisive.
The track is in a traditional oval shape, with chutes for the 1,000 and 2,400 metre starts. The horses run in an anti-clockwise direction.
Belmont Park is renowned as a racecourse with a superb drainage system, meaning that meets are very rarely abandoned at the track because of wet weather. With water draining quickly, it also means that Belmont isn't a favourite track for wet-track specialists.
Starting Points and Distances
1000m- Horses start from a chute that gently feeds onto the turn for home. Because of this, the horses have a fairly straight run prior to hitting the first true bend, meaning that barriers play a reduced role.
1200m- With only a fast and frantic dash before hitting the long bend into the home straight, horses with a wide draw are disadvantaged. There isn't enough time for jockeys to tuck in, and they will be covering more ground.
1300m- Similar to the 1200m start, horses drawn out wide face a tougher task.
1400m- The gates open at the far end of the back straight, providing a fair run for all runners before hitting the home turn. Unless horses are drawn in the river, there is enough time to find a good spot.
1600m- Horses begin on the on the turn into the back straight. It's never ideal to begin a race on a curve, and why the inside barriers are preferable once again.
2000m- Gates crash open in front of the grandstand, with 300m to run prior to hitting the first bend. Horses caught out wide will have to cover more ground and why inside barriers still have an advantage here.
2200m- This distance allows the horses to dash up the entire length of the straight prior to galloping on to the first bend. Jockeys have more than enough time to find cover, with barriers playing next to no role.
2400m- Horses begin from a chute 200m directly behind the 2200-metre start. With a straight run of 700 metres before approaching the first of two bends, barriers play no role.
