Going Report

The Going will be updated here ahead of our next meeting on July 17th, day one of our 4 day Festival


A SIMPLE GUIDE TO THE ‘GOING’

The official ‘Going’ is the description of ground conditions experienced by a horse on the racecourse.

Heavy

Soft

Good to Soft

Good

Good to Firm

Firm

These terms can be combined to give a more accurate description of the Going, for example: Good, Good to Soft in places, and so on.

The Going Report is usually available seven days prior to each race meeting and is updated regularly.

Other information may also be given alongside the Official Going, such as ‘watering’, which is when the Clerk of the Course deems it necessary to water the course if the weather has been particularly dry.
