York Racecourse is a popular horse racing venue located in York, North Yorkshire, in England. It's the third largest racecourse in Britain regarding the total prize money offered, as well as the second behind Ascot in terms of prize money offered for every meeting. The venue attracts approximately 350,000 racegoers every year.In the eighteenth century, the course was horseshoe in shape; it was judged to be England's best race (course) for seeing the diversion. The track was enlarged from the home straight end, making a full round course in 2005. That was to host the Royal meeting 2-mile 4 f Gold Cup, which was moved to Ascot and taken to York that year. That meant all 2-mile races were now run on the round course, beginning just before the post that marks the end of a race. The former 2-mile start was ended. book our 8 12,16 seater minibuses or for large groups choose our 33 to 49 seater coaches on hire.
The previous layout happened in the early seventies, when to accommodate the A64 (York ring road), opened in the year 1976, the straight course got reduced to 6 furlongs from 7 furlongs, and then the construction of the current 7-furlong chute.
The most important meeting at York is called the Ebor Festival, a 4-day race meeting held every year in August. The meeting's feature is the Ebor Handicap, one of the premier handicap races in Europe.
The Juddmonte International meeting, another important date in the racing calendar of York, is Group one race above 10.5 furlongs for 3-year-olds or older. It takes place on the initial day of York's celebrated Ebor Festival in mid-August. It's the richest race of the season in York, with the current prize money amounting to £1 million.
