York Racecourse

Bet with William Hill at York Racecourse

York Racecourse is one of the biggest horse racing venues in the UK. Located in the south-west of the city of York, it features some of the most highly rated flat races each year. The marquee event held at the racecourse is the Ebor Festival held each August. It is a top class festival that features three Group 1 races - the International Stakes, the Yorkshire Oaks and the Nunthorpe Stakes. It has won the title of Racecourse of the Year twice, and is a fitting venue for some of the best flat racing in the summer months.

York Racecourse - Top Class Horse Racing

York is one of the oldest cities in Britain, and horse racing is said to have taken place in the city since Roman times. Although the exact date of the founding York Racecourse is still argued about, it has nevertheless been in operation since the early 18thcentury, making it one of the UK’s oldest. It has sometimes acted as a substitute venue for many of the UK’s top festivals and races, including the Royal Meeting (normally Ascot) of 2005 and the St Ledger (normally Doncaster) in 2006. The racecourse has become iconic and a true part of Yorkshire’s heritage, summed up by the fact it was chosen as the starting point for the 2014 Tour de France.

The Ebor Festival, which is named after Eboracum the Roman name for York, takes place each August. It features four days of top flat racing, which never fails to attract a stellar field of horses, trainers and jockeys. The feature race of the festival is arguably the Ebor Handicap, regarded as one of Europe’s most important handicap races. There is also the three Group 1 races, which have seen wins down the years for greats such as Frankel (International Stakes 2012), Midday (Yorkshire Oaks 2010) and Sharpo (Nunthorpe Stakes 1980, 1981, 1982).

Of course, the York races don’t just end with the Ebor Festival; there are plenty of top meetings running from May to September to whet the appetite. If you visit in May you could see the Yorkshire Cup, Dante Stakes and Middleton Stakes; all top races that feature some of the best names in the business. The season at York Racecourse runs from spring to autumn, and there are plenty of meetings in that time. The season comes to an end with a two day finale in October, which features 14 races and sees some of the end of season accolades (jockey and trainer prizes for records at York racecourse) awarded.
