On this page you will find Sandown tip statistics for Australia's leading form experts and racing personalities. This
will include valuable information such as POT at the track, which is highly beneficial when deciding which Sandown
tips you want to follow.
When there are no upcoming Sandown races and therefore no tips available, this page will display a
leaderboard of tipping success at Sandown from past meetings in the past 90 days.
Both the Sandown tip stats and leaderboard are valuable in highlighting who in the racing industry has their head
around the Sandown track and the horses that race there. Will one of the analysts from the Racing.com stable tip their socks
off at Sandown, or will an unheralded amateur prove that they're the one to follow at the track?
About Sandown Racecourse
Located 25 kilometres south-east of Melbourne's CBD and not far from Dandenong, Sandown Racecourse (Ladbrokes Park)
is Melbourne's newest racecourse, having been opened in 1965. This makes Sandown the only metropolitan racecourse in
Sydney or Melbourne to be built in the twentieth century.
Sandown's biggest race day comes on the Saturday after the Flemington carnival, where it hosts two Group Twos: the
Sandown Guineas over a mile, and the Zipping Classic over a mile and a half. The Zipping Classic in particular is a
quality race, attracting Melbourne Cup runners looking for a win before they go for a spell.
The track at Sandown is unique in that its races can either be run on the Lakeside or Hillside course. Sandown
Lakeside is the shorter option, with a circumference of 1857 metres, and a home straight of 407 metres. The name
Lakeside refers to the turn into the straight being closer to the lake in the centre of the track.
The alternate racing option came about after a track redevelopment in 2001, which added an additional home turn after
the original, extending the length of both the back and home straights.
In this Hillside configuration, the home straight is a whopping 491 metres, making 41 metres longer than Flemington's
450-metre straight and one of the longest in Australia. This provides all jockeys the opportunity to manoeuvre their
mount into the clear and make a dash at the winning post.
