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. 

Rosehill is the Sydney Turf Club's main racecourse.

Its circumference is 2,048 metres. The straight is 408 metres long and 26 metres wide at the winning post.

Being a flat course it provides easy runs in both sprint and distance races. The long straight does give quality back runners a chance swooping wide.

In the straight many horses racing even just off the pace tend to get boxed in on the rails without a run.

Barrier one for leaders and on pace runners is very important. The leaders and on pace horses can have an easy time and not get run down despite the length of the home straight. Rosehill is very much a specialists' track.

Barrier Guide

1100 metres: This barrier starts in a chute on the course proper. There is only a short run of about 300 metres to a very sharp hairpin double turn into the straight. Inside barriers have a significant advantage.

1200 metres:
This barrier starts in the same chute on the course proper as the 1100 metres start. There is a run of about 400 metres to a very sharp hairpin double turn into the straight. Despite the new track camber, inside barriers still have a significant advantage.

1350 metres:
This barrier starts on the course proper with a straight run of about 300 metres to the first turn. Inside barriers have the advantage.

1500metres:
This barrier is located in a chute off the course proper with a straight run of about 450 metres to the first turn. Again, inside barriers have the advantage.

1900 metres:
This barrier starts on the course proper with a run of about 350 metres to the first corner. Inside barriers have the advantage.

2000 metres: Similar to the 1900 metres start but with a run of about 450 metres to the first corner. Inside barriers again have the advantage.

2400 metres: This barrier starts on the course proper in the home straight with a run of about 350 metres to the winning post for the first time. Inside barriers have the advantage.
