The busiest Racecourse in North Yorkshire


Catterick Racecourse is one of the true homes of the Northern racing scene – a venue steeped in tradition and a favourite among many of the region’s owners, trainers and racing public.

Racing at Catterick Bridge began as early as the mid-17th Century and the first recorded meeting took place on April 22nd 1783, but it was not until 1813 that a permanent course was created.

Today, Catterick is a charming blend of old and new. The framework of the old 1906 stand is still evident in the present Grandstand but many alterations and improvements have taken place while maintaining the informal atmosphere.

Upcoming Events
Catterick hosts both National Hunt and Flat races, so there is something for all kinds of racing enthusiast.  It caters for every racegoer, with Ladies’ Days, family days, afternoon and evening racing.

A full list of race meetings can be viewed at the bottom of this page, where you can also book tickets.
