The hustle and bustle of trackside, or a seat in the stands? Close to the finish line or handy for the bar? Pick your favourite spot.
The best place to drink in the excitement and to savour the sweet scent of victory. This is where the winning horses are reunited with their owners and where the trophies are presented.
This where the horses and riders parade before each race. It's your opportunity to get a good look at the runners before you place your bets.
Nothing can beat the excitement of watching the race from the rails - the flashing colours and thundering hooves as the field races by is a moment to savour, especially if you can get near the finish line.
Sandown Park has steppings in both the Grandstand and the Premier Enclosure, with the latter level with the Winning Post. The steppings are set back from the track but allow racegoers to view the race from a height which provides a great view all the way down the finishing straight.
