York Racecourse & York Directory
York Racecourse is situated some 200 miles north of London close to the historic city of York
YORK RACECOURSE: POSSIBLY THE FINEST RACECOURSE IN THE UK
Seen by many as not only the finest racecourse in the north, but in the whole of the UK, York Racecourse provides the best Flat racing can offer.
York Racecourse, opened in 1731, is a galloping two-miles and was extended to stage longer races in 2005 when Royal Ascot was re-routed to York. The course is a left-hand perfectly flat track with a home straight of about 5f.
There is no fairer course in the country, giving no advantage to any type of horse. Low numbers best in sprints when the going is soft.
The best known race meeting at York Racecourse being the Ebor Festival which takes place in August each year.
