Wetherby Racecourse

Wetherby Racecourse

Details

Yorkshire's only exclusively National Hunt jumps racecourse, with easy access to Wetherby, and only 12 miles from Leeds, Wetherby Racecourse is one of the most convenient and enjoyable places to follow horse racing in Britain.
Horses have raced on the current site since 1891 however, long before, that local people gathered to enjoy competition in the town at Scaur Bank.
Wetherby's love of horse racing is perhaps most evident in December, when its hugely popular two-day Christmas meeting takes place on 26th and 27th.
Wetherby's most famous race is autumn's £100,000 Charlie Hall Chase which, with eighteen fences over more than three miles, is often contested by horses that will later do battle in the Cheltenham Gold Cup and the Grand National.
Calendar
Wetherby's jump racing season runs from October through to early June, with no less than 17 meetings planned for 2009/10. Highlights include the extremely popular Christmas Carol Saturday on 5th December, a family day on Sunday 25th April, and three Thursday evening meetings in May and June that should provide a perfect combination of relaxation and excitement.
Whenever you visit, you will find Wetherby racecourse just off the A1, on the opposite side of the road to the charming and lively market town of Wetherby itself.
If there is no racing on any given Sunday all is not lost however - Wetherby Racecourse also plays host to a very popular Sunday market and car boot sale.
