Where is York Racecourse?
York Racecourse, also known as the Knavesmire, is 2km south of the city centre just off the A64. It is situated close to the A19 and is 20km east of the A1(M) J44.
York railway station is a 25-minute walk from the track and the 197 shuttle bus operates on racedays.
What is York Racecourse Famous For?
The first recorded York Races were in the Forest of Galtres north of the city in 1530. Concerns over the River Ouse flooding prompted a transfer to the Knavesmire, which staged its first meeting in 1731.
Jumps racing lasted just two decades in the late 19th century after York had tried to rival Doncaster's St Leger meeting. In 1851, over 100,000 turned out to see The Flying Dutchman beat fellow Derby and Leger winner Voltigeur in a match. York remains one of Britain's top flat tracks and hosts 18 fixtures each summer.
York Racecourse Track Specifics
York is a left-handed flat galloping two-mile (3200m) oval with shallow turns. It was U-shaped before being made into a circuit to stage Royal Ascot – specifically the Gold Cup – in 2005 during Ascot's redevelopment.
There is a straight six-furlong (1200m) track plus two chutes to accommodate alternative race distances. It is very fair, with excellent drainage usually ensuring good ground.
Biggest Meetings at York Racecourse
The four-day Ebor Festival in late August is one of the highlights of the flat season. First run in 1843, the Ebor Handicap on the Saturday is Europe's richest flat handicap.
The meeting also features the track's three Group 1s - the Juddmonte International on the Wednesday, the Yorkshire Oaks on the Thursday, and the Nunthorpe Stakes on the Friday.
