What is Windsor Racecourse famous for?
While informal racing took place in Windsor Great Park among royalty and noblemen as early as the 1300s, the first Windsor Races proper were held in 1682 at Datchet Ferry.
Steeplechasing started in the 1840s to the west of Windsor before the first meeting on the current site, Rays Meadow, in 1866. Windsor was the scene of a famous strike by bookmakers in 1926 after Home Secretary Winston Churchill introduced a betting tax.
Windsor stopped staging National Hunt in 1998 although it did take on some jumps cards in 2004 and 2005 during Ascot's redevelopment. Over half its 27 meetings a year from April to October are its popular Monday evening cards which were launched in the 1960s.
Windsor Racecourse Track Specifics
Windsor is a flat right-handed figure-of-eight track and races over a mile (1600m) start with a gentle left-turn. The bends are tight but the long run-in of close to five furlongs (1000m) gives gallopers a chance.
There is a six-furlong (1200m) straight track with those drawn high (towards the far rail) favoured particularly on soft ground.
Windsor Racecourse Biggest Meeting
Windsor's highlight is August Bank Holiday Saturday featuring a number of musical performers. The feature is the Group 3 Winter Hill Stakes over 10 furlongs (2000m) supported by the Listed August Stakes.
