Renovating Our Track
RSS Feeds Thursday, April 23, 2020


Two weeks ago we undertook a huge project on our training division - having our 6 furlong track graded! Over three days, we had the surface pushed back towards the middle, tilled, and lastly leveled.  The straightaways are now at a 2% grade, and the turns at 4%. We did this to improve the footing in multiple ways:

1. Increases safety for horse and rider by leveling the surface
2. Improves drainage
3. Increases the consistency of the footing

Watch some clips of the process below. Thanks to Ron Eldridge Excavating for their work on this project!  We're excited to get out and be training on this top-class surface.
