Arlington Racecourse is a turf horse racing track situated in Port Elizabeth, in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Port Elizabeth has two major horseracing racecourses, namely Arlington and Fairview, which are managed and maintained by Phumelela Gaming and Leisure Limited. Racing takes place at either course every Friday afternoon.
The track is an undulating oval that covers a distance of 2,000m. It races up a 1,000m downhill straight course. Beyond 1,000m is a clockwise round turn with a 600m run-in. The draw is of little significance, except over 1,200m where low numbers best. Horse racing is a hugely popular sport in South Africa, with regular racing taking place around the country. The sport in South Africa enjoys a long and rich history that can be traced back to 1797, with the first recorded race club meeting taking place in 1802.
