Where is Worcester Racecourse?
Worcester Racecourse is in the cathedral city on the A449 next to the River Severn. It is close to the A44 and the M5 J6.
Worcester Foregate Street is the nearest rail station 10 minutes walk from the track with Worcester Shrub Hill a further 10 minutes away.
What is Worcester Racecourse famous for?
The Worcester Races were first held in 1718 at Pitchcroft, formerly known as Pitchcroft Holmes, and remain there to this day. The layout has changed a handful of times - it was once a figure-of-eight course – over the years with flat racing ceasing in 1966.
In 1995, due to regular flooding from the Severn, it became a summer jumps track and now hosts 20 fixtures a year. It remains susceptible to waterlogging with the 2007 floods forcing racing to be cancelled from the end of June.
Worcester Racecourse Track Specifics
Worcester is a flat left-handed one mile and five-furlong (2600m) oval with easy turns which are fair to all. The portable fences are far from demanding making it ideal for novices gaining experience.
As chases and hurdles use the same ground, chases usually open the card with the fences removed ahead of the bumper and then three fixed brush hurdle races.
Worcester Racecourse Biggest Meeting
Ladies Day is the most popular raceday in Worcester's season and takes place on the first Saturday in June, aka Derby Day.
The best card of the year is in late October with the final of the Fixed Brush Hurdle Series Novices' Handicap Hurdle now Worcester's most valuable race. Also on the card are the Fred and Mercy Rimell Memorial Handicap Chase and the Richard Davis Memorial Novice Handicap Chase.
