Bangor-on-Dee racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in Bangor-on-dee near wrexham, Wales. It is a left-handed National Hunt racecourse, and does not have a Grandstand. The racecourse held its first race in 1859 and has since held horse racing regularly except during the wars. Since 2006 Bangor has also hosted amateur Point-to-Point races run by local hunts. The course for the Point-to-Point is on the inside of the main track and races are run right handed. In May 2012, all former Tote betting positions were replaced by the racecourse's own in-house bangorBET betting system. The Clerk of the Course is Andrew Morris, who is also Clerk of the Course at sister track Chester, where flat racing takes place. Today, many of the top trainers send their novice horses to race at Bangor-on-Dee as part of their education: Paul Nicholls, Alan King, Phillip Hobbs, Donald McCain (Cholmondeley) Nicky Henderson, and Jonjo O'Neill all have regular runners at Bangor-on-Dee.
