What is Catterick Racecourse Famous For?
The first official Catterick Races were held in 1783 although a fixed racecourse was not established until 1813. Its first grandstand was built in 1906.
Catterick Racecourse is a popular venue for flat racing in the summer and National Hunt in the winter with around 28 meetings per year.
Catterick Racecourse Track Specifics
Catterick is a left-handed oval around nine furlongs (1800m) in length with sharp turns. The run-in is three furlongs (600m) long. Horses are on the turn for long periods and this combined with undulating ground, including a downhill turn into the home straight, can be something of a hindrance to long-striding animals.
Biggest Meeting's at Catterick Racecourse
The North Yorkshire Grand National is Catterick's most valuable race in early January and it is the track's longest at three miles and six furlongs (6000m). Soft ground, as is common at this time of year, can turn this into an attritional test of stamina.
The highlight on the flat is the Catterick Dash over the minimum trip of five furlongs (1000m). It is staged in October on the same day as British Champions Day at Ascot.
