Ludlow is a sharp, right-handed, oval track, with a nine-fence chase circuit about a mile and a half and a run-in of 250 yards, which requires riders to steer left after the last to avoid taking the wrong course. The fences are easy, though the first fence in the home straight can catch horses out. The hurdle course, which runs on the outside of the chase course, has easier turns. Whereas the chase course is flat, the hurdle course has slight undulations but they rarely provide difficulties for a long-striding horse.

Ludlow is a real speed-orientated track. It’s very flat, right-handed and about a mile and a half round. The fences are some of the softest in the country, and many a sketchy jumper can scrape their way around there and not many other places. The hurdle track takes a slightly different course down the back straight making it less tight on the bends than the chase track where you can be racing coming out of the back straight.
