Track Information

The 2,000 metres-(1¼ miles) long and 31 metres wide left-handed oval-shaped sand-based racetrack at Kranji is turfed with El-Toro Zoysia, a grass patented by the University of California and is reinforced with netlon fibres.

Extensive tests and trials have shown that El-Toro Zoysia gives an excellent cushion and is ideal for galloping. Given the high rainfall in Singapore, the track's sand base will prevent water logging and will provide a good racing surface throughout the year. An ideal camber on the home turns and a slight incline on the 400 metres home straight will make exciting finishes a regular feature.

The 1,500 metres long Polytrack is also used regularly for racing.

Training is conducted on either one of the four excellent tracks:

1,500 metres long and 25 metres wide Polytrack (Track No. 2);
1,300 metres long and 20 metres wide sand track(Track No. 3);
1,000 metres long and 10 metres wide Tapeta Track/Polytrack (Track No. 4) outside of the backstraight of the turf track and 500 metres long and 8 metres wide trotting sand track (Track No. 5) in the Infield.
