Please note the going is available 6 days prior to each meeting.



All UK turf racecourses publish a TurfTrax GoingStick reading alongside their official description of the going.


This procedure scientifically measures 'penetration' and 'shear', the two forces which the horses' hooves exert when they hit the ground.


The GoingStick measurement scale ranges from 1 to 15 – a lower reading means the ground is softer or slower, a higher reading means it's firmer or faster.
