Where is Bangor Racecourse?
Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse is North Wales' only racecourse and lies 25 minutes south of Chester via the A483. From the South and Midlands it can be reached via the M6 and M54 followed by the A41 and A525. Wrexham General and Wrexham Central rail stations are both 5km away with a free shuttle bus operating from the former on racedays.
What is Bangor Racecourse Famous For?
Bangor Races were first held in 1859 in the same site as they are today. The jumps-only racecourse is next to the River Dee and known as one of the most picturesque tracks in country. Uniquely among British racetracks, there is no grandstand with spectators watching from surrounding grass banks.
Bangor Racecourse Track Specifics
Bangor consists of a left-handed largely flat track around one and a half miles (2400m) in length. It is shaped roughly like a right-angled triangle with three sharp turns, and horses are pretty much on the turn for almost all of the race.
Due to its fast nature and short run-in, it is most definitely suited to frontrunners while its fences are not overly-demanding.
Biggest Meeting's at Bangor Racecourse
The Anne Duchess of Westminster Charity day in November is the biggest meeting on the Bangor Races calendar featuring the Anne Duchess of Westminster Memorial Steeplechase, a 0-150 Class 2 handicap, and a Listed mares' novice chase, the track's only black-type race. There is also a lucrative Class 2 handicap hurdle on the card.
Bangor plays host to at least a couple of family racedays, a popular Ladies Day in August, and a well-supported Christmas meeting.
