What is Beverley Racecourse Famous For?
Beverley Racecourse adjoins a large expanse of common land called Beverley Westwood. It opened in 1690 with the first annual meeting established in 1767. Its famous uphill finish was a runway when the course was converted into Beverley Aerodrome in World War I.
Beverley is the county town of the East Riding of Yorkshire and a picturesque and historic market town.
Beverley Racecourse Track Specifics
Beverley has an 11-furlong (2200m) right-handed round course which goes uphill on the home turn and then rises steadily on the two-and-a-half furlong (500m) run-in.
There is also a five-furlong (1000m) track with a shallow right turn which rises throughout making it something of a stamina test. With the finish sloping left, horses drawn low (on the inside) have less distance to travel and thereby have a big advantage, a fact not lost on punters or bookmakers.
Biggest Meeting's at Beverley Racecourse
The Beverley Bullet is the track's most famous race and takes place on Beverley Bullet Raceday on a Saturday in late August or early September. Staged on the 'straight' five-furlong course, it is now Beverley's only Listed race.
Earlier in August is the track's popular Ladies' Day. The Hilary Needler Trophy for juvenile fillies, usually held in late May, was a Listed race before being downgraded in 2011. Like the Bullet, it is run on the straight five-furlong track.
