Stratford Racecourse is home to summer jumps racing, with regular meetings between March and November.
The left-handed course is sharp, only one mile and two furlongs round, with a short finishing straight and a popular picnic area for families in the middle of the track.
Although the racing standard can be modest, the crowds at Stratford races are healthy and many leading trainers like the course as a venue to test young horses and ensure their jumping is up to scratch.
The highlight of the calendar is the two-day meeting in June that features the Champion Hunter Chase.

Stratford Racecourse is a summer time track that is flat. The fences down the back have become half-banks, so there’s a run up to them. It’s a dominant front runners track because of its layout. The home straight is quite a sharp one, chasers have to bypass the water and come in on the dogleg. There's a long sweeping home bend, but it's not quite enough to make a move through the field, hence why you see horses win from the front. The leaders don’t come back to you.

Stratford races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.
This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Stratford races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.
It’s still worth checking Stratford races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Stratford Racecourse event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
