Doncaster Racecourse

Doncaster racecourse is a horse-racing track in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, United Kingdom. It opened in 1614, at Legar Way


Doncaster Racecourse also called the Town Moor course, is one of Britain’s oldest (and the largest in physical capacity) established horse racing tracks. It has records of race meetings since the 16th century, located in the center of the UK, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, owned by Arena Leisure Plc.

A map of 1595 already shows a racecourse at Town Moor. In 1600 the corporation tried to end the races because of the number of ruffians they attracted, but by 1614 it acknowledged failure and instead marked out a racecourse.

It hosted both Flat and jump racing, including two of Britain’s 36 annual Group 1 races on the Flat, the William Hill St Leger Stakes (established in 1776) and the Vertem Futurity Trophy Stakes. It was also used to be considered the official start and end of the Flat season. The track had been famous for these. However, during the First World War, the racecourse was utilized for military purposes, and substitute races were run at Newmarket from 1915 to 1918.

Track Details

Its grade 2 course is a left-handed, pear-shaped track of around 1 mile 7½ furlongs (3.1 km) which is mostly flat with a very slight incline and subsequent descent at around the 1m mark. Although it has a 4½f run-in, there is a 4f chute available that produces a 1m straight course. An alternate one-mile start is located on another off-shoot of the main circuit, but this is less commonly used than the other. At the same time, the track for the National Hunt track is the same length as the flat one, with the steeplechase course having 11 fences. Due to there being seven fences in the final mile of the course. Then the hurdle course is the same length and has seven flights overall.

Aside from racing, it also has other functions for conventions such as the Tattoo Festival and business meetings such as Doncaster Dynamites BNI. It offers a variety of enclosures such as the Premier Suite exclusive to premier guests.
