Well-positioned just off the A1(M) 20 minutes from Teeside and Darlington, this jumps course is set in the Durham countryside. A tight track with fairly sharp bends, this is not a course that suits the long-striding galloper but when the ground is rain-softened, the steep, uphill finish comes into play.
Racing has been taking place at Sedgefield from around 1732, with the first recorded meetings in 1846.
Sharp undulating left-hand track with a run-in of 220yds. With eight easy fences and five hurdles per circuit. A severe test of stamina for chasers when the ground is heavy.
