Racing is recorded to have taken place in Pontefract as early as 1648. The course is run left handed over an undulating circuit two miles in circumference, with a two furlong home straight. That makes it the longest continuous flat racing circuit in Europe!

Here at Pontefract we have 16 meetings a year and there is something for everyone to enjoy!

We host two music nights on our Friday Evening Meetings in May and July where we welcome some fantastic performers to take to the stage following racing. We also have three Sunday Meetings each year, the popular Family Days are a calendar highlight, with superb racing and great family entertainment.

We also have our annual Ladies Day and the Best Dressed Lady will take home a holiday for two courtesy of RIU Hotels and Resorts!

There are also a number of different options for eating and drinking at the Racecourse, from the exclusivity and luxury of a private box to Yorkshire’s famous Fish & Chips from one of the mobile units around the Racecourse.

You will find us just half a mile from Junction 32 of the M62.
