Hamilton Racecourse Events & Fixtures
While Hamilton Park races today may not be among the most notable, the track has a history of innovation. Authorities governing horse racing in the UK have been prepared to try new things at this venue with the first meeting on an evening held there in 1947. Later on, in 1971, Hamilton Racecourse became the first in Britain to host a fixture that started in the morning (before noon).
Situated just 12 miles southeast of Glasgow city centre, the track has some similarities with Goodwood races down in West Sussex. Just across the River Clyde from Strathclyde Loch, Hamilton Park is the only dedicated Flat only racecourse in Scotland.
Other tracks north of the border like Ayr and Musselburgh races stage National Hunt fixtures during the winter too. Hamilton Racecourse is slightly further out of Glasgow than the latter is from Edinburgh’s famous Royal Mile, yet remains a popular and well-attended track.
