    We’ve booked a long weekend in Stockholm in July and a quick check revealed that Taby racecourse hold a meeting on July 13th. Can anybody tell me a little about the racecourse at Taby? Their website tells me a little bit in English, but I wondered if anyone on the forum has first hand experience of the course.

    My uncle lives pretty much next to the course and I’ve been there a few times. It’s a nice small course, built very much on the ‘cold weather’ model in that most of the viewing is indoors. The best way to watch racing there is to get a table in the glass walled restaurant with viewing of the track (it’s quite a tight oval, so viewing is good anyway). There’s not usually much atmosphere, but it’s quite a friendly place. Unfortunately I can’t give you an idea of prices as I’ve never had to pay.

    Taby is a little way out of central Stockholm, but is very easy (and cheap) to get to on the train – there is a station just outside the course.

    Never been to Taby, but a mate of mine went 2 years ago, and the day he went, it was 4 horse races and 4 trotting races. All I do know about Taby is that the major races are held in August and September – the Group 3 Stockholm Cup is usually second week of September.
