|A tight, right-handed track with some tricky obstacles to negotiate, Huntingdon undoubtedly favours those horses that have the ability to lie handy. The Open Ditch directly in front of the stands provides a real speactacle for racegoers. The highlight of their season is the Peterborough Chase, a two and a half mile contest in November that attracts leading two and three-mile chasers. The course stages 17-20 meetings per year. Another recently introduced race is the Mascot's Grand National in September, a fun race designed for football club mascots in full costume which attracts national coverage.|
