Musselburgh Racecourse, Linkfield Road, Musselburgh, East Lothian, EH21 7RG.

THERE is a rich history of horse racing at Musselburgh races stretching back to 1816. The track stages both Flat and national hunt racing and due to its coastal location, when other meetings are called off, Musselburgh often beats the weather. On the Flat the highlights include the Edinburgh Castle Stakes in June and the Scottish Sprint Cup in the same month. Over jumps, Musselburgh races has now established Scottish Trials day as a vital event ahead of the Cheltenham Festival. Nicky Henderson likes to send some of his big guns north for this fixture and has an excellent record.
