Pontefract racecourse provides excellent motorway links and so offers good communications not only with local horse training centres but also with other major training centres in the country, notably Newmarket, with the result that the racing is both competitive and entertaining.

We host 3 Evening Meetings and 3 Sunday Meetings each year – the popular Sunday Family Days are the highlight of the calendar with superb racing to match great family entertainment.

Our 3 evening meetings offer a variety of entertainment to support some fantastic racing!

There are two music events on Friday evenings in May and July where the Racecourse welcomes some fantastic performers each year. There’s also a brilliant Monday evening race meeting in June.

We also host an annual Ladies Day and the Best Dressed Lady will walk away with an all inclusive holiday for 2 courtesy of RIU Hotels and Resorts!
