Go Racing In Yorkshire

Yorkshire is synonymous with horse racing


With nine fabulous and varied racecourses spread across the county, from Beverley in the east to Wetherby and  Pontefract in the west, Doncaster in the south to Redcar via Ripon, Thirsk and Catterick in the North and with York the jewel in the crown, there is nowhere in Britain to match Yorkshire for horse racing whether it is on the Flat or over jumps.

Add to the mix a multitude of successful trainers and a long list of jockeys, riding at the top of their game, first-class facilities at Jack Berry House, the rehabilitation centre for jockeys and stable staff, and the National Horse racing College, which is the first step for many joining the racing industry and facilitating the ongoing development and progression of those already involved, then it is clear to see why winners come from Yorkshire.

Be part of the winning crowd, when you go racing in Yorkshire.  From championship racing to more relaxed family days and everything in between, there is a race day to suit your mood or occasion.

Go Racing In Yorkshire is the marketing organisation of Yorkshire’s nine racecourses, working with them and independently to promote racing in our great county.
