Why are some horses track specialists?

Why do some tracks produce nightmare results for punters?

Why do some tracks favour leaders?

These answers and more can be found in our descriptions of Australia's main horse racing tracks. 

Morphettville is the South Australian Jockey Club's main racecourse. It is the venue for the majority of South Australia's prestige races.

It has a circumference of 2,339 metres with a 334 metres straight. It is a spacious course with wide turns and gives strong finishers every chance.

Barrier Guide

1000 metres: This barrier is located in a chute off the course proper. There is a straight run of about 400 metres to the home turn. Inside barriers have a slight advantage.

1100 metres:
Similar to the 1000 metres start. There is a straight run of about 500 metres to the home turn. Inside barriers have a slight advantage.

1200 metres:
Similar to the 1000 metres start. There is a straight run of about 600 metres to the home turn. Inside barriers have a slight advantage.

1600 metres:
This barrier starts on the course proper with a run of 300 metres to the first turn. Inside barriers have the advantage.

1800 metres:
Similar to the 1600 metres start, this barrier starts on the course proper in the back section with a run of 500 metres to the first turn. Inside barriers have a slight advantage.

2000 metres: This barrier starts only 150 metres from the turn that leads to the back straight. Inside barriers have a considerable advantage.

2400 metres: This barrier starts in the home straight with only 150 metres to the first turn. Inside barriers have the advantage.

2600 metres: Similar to the 2400 metres, this barrier starts in the home straight with 350 metres to the first turn. Inside barriers have an advantage.

3200 metres:
This is the Adelaide Cup start. It commences just before the turn leading into the home straight. Inside barriers are a significant advantage. Again, there is nothing worse than covering extra ground out wide in a 3200 metres race.
