Salisbury Racecourse

Bet on Horse Races at Salisbury Racecourse with William Hill

With races taking place there since the mid 16th Century, Salisbury Racecourse is one of the oldest horse racing courses in the UK. Located in the Wiltshire countryside - just twenty minutes drive from the iconic Stonehenge Monument - it stages 16 flat horse races from May - October each year. The course itself is right-handed track of a length of around three miles, and consists of a tough run in of seven furlongs. The most notable races to take place there each year include the Cathedral Stakes (June), Dick Poole Stakes (August) and the highlight race of the season at Salisbury, the Sovereign Stakes (September).

Welcome to Salisbury Racecourse

Although exact dates are not known, Salisbury Racecourse has been in continuous operation (except during the World Wars) since the middle of the 16th Century. One of the most notable early races was the King’s Plate in 1723, which was awarded by King George I. Throughout the years it has featured many wins by legendary horses, including Sun Chariot, Mill Reef and Sir Percy. Way back in 1948, it was also the site of a flat race competitive debut for a certain young jockey named Lester Piggott: little did the crowds know that day that the young Master Piggott would go on to win a big race or two before retiring!

As mentioned, the Salisbury Races are held on 16 different days each year. They are all flat meetings, meaning you get to see the top flat jockeys - Ryan Moore, Frankie Dettori and Silvestre de Sousa to name a few - in action at Salisbury Racecourse. The most prestigious race in the calendar is the Sovereign Stakes, which is a Group 3 race for 3-year-olds run over one mile. It usually takes place on the second Thursday in August at 16.25pm. Notable winners in the past include Kodi Bear (2015, Side Glance (2011) and Sea Lord (2010).

In September, Salisbury holds a top class race for two-year-old fillies, the Dick Poole Fillies’ Stakes. It is a sprint race, run over six furlongs. In has been won by top horses like Crimplene (1999), who went on to win the Sussex Stakes and Irish 100 Guineas the next year. There are plenty of other great races to whet the appetite at Salisbury throughout the summer months, including the listed Stonehenge Stakes and Upavon Fillies’ Stakes (both held in August). Whatever the meeting Salisbury guarantees the crowds top action, all set to the backdrop of the beautiful southern English countryside.
