Where is Wetherby Racecourse?
Wetherby Racecourse is in West Yorkshire off the B1224, 20km west of York. It is 1km from J46 of the A1(M) and 25km north-east of Leeds via the A58.

What is Wetherby Racecourse Famous For?
The first Wetherby Races were held in nearby Linton in 1842 and the Wetherby Hunt Committee relocated to the current York Road venue in 1891.
Having previously solely staged National Hunt, Wetherby put on its first flat card in 2015. It now holds 16 winter jumps meetings and three or four flat fixtures a year.
Wetherby Racecourse Track Specifics
Wetherby is a left-handed flat galloping one-and-a-half mile (2000m) oval with easy turns. Although speed is of prime importance, the four-furlong (800m) home straight does require stamina, especially in testing conditions.
On the flat, there is a chute for a five-furlong (1000m) start at the end of the back straight. Prominent racers tend to fare best in both codes on what is seen as a fair test.
Biggest Meetings at Wetherby Racecourse
The Grade 2 Charlie Hall Chase at the end of October or start of November has seen the seasonal debuts of several top staying chasers down the years. Also on the card are the Grade 2 West Yorkshire Hurdle and the Listed Wetherby Mares' Hurdle.
Wetherby's two-day Christmas meeting is also very popular and is headed by the Grade 3 Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase on Boxing Day.
