Racecourse Information

The History

Racing has taken place in this popular seaside tourist town since 1715 and at the current racecourse location since 1920. It is an important flat racecourse, with good grass cover on a free draining sandy base with a season that runs from April through to October. Its proximity to Newmarket has ensured great support from some of the best training yards in the country and it is particularly popular with trainers for running young ‘novice’ horses due to the excellent one mile straight and level surface.
