Flat Racing

Dundalk Stadium is a left-handed oval 10 furlong polytrack (all-weather) racecourse with a 5 furlong chute.  The racecourse features floodlights that allow Dundalk to race at night.

What is Polytrack?

Polytrack is a combination of silica sand, recycled synthetic fibres, recycled rubber/PVC and jelly cable which are all blended with a coating of wax.

The polytrack surface, which has the same characteristics as turf, provides a consistent surface even in the worst of weather and another key benefit is improved safety for horses and jockeys.

The Going

The ‘Going’ description for an all0weather track is described as ‘Standard.’  This equates to the ‘Good’ side of ‘Good to Firm’
