Haydock Park Racecourse, Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside WA12 0HQ 0344 579 3006

Situated halfway between Liverpool and Manchester, Haydock races is one of the most popular courses in the UK in terms of attendance. Although the turns are tight, the long steady straights mean that the course is considered one of the fairest in the country.

On the flat the highlight is the Haydock Sprint Cup, a Group One sprint over six furlongs that is run in early September. Other important Flat races include the Temple Stakes, Lancashire Oaks and the Rose of Lancaster Stakes.

Haydock races also hosts top-quality National Hunt racing over the winter, when the highlight is the Grade One Betfair Chase run over three miles in November. The race is the first leg of the £1million Jockey Club racecourses treble, with the King George VI Chase at Kempton and the Cheltenham Gold Cup the other legs.

The roll of honour includes the legendary Kauto Star, Imperial Commander, Cue Card and Silviniaco Conti.
