Tradition has it that in the fourteenth century soldiers from Ludlow Castle went to Ludlow Racecourse to match their horses. There is certainly a record of racing in 1725. The course retains its strong Edwardian character and also a strong club atmosphere. Now a National Hunt course, jumping started in the mid-nineteenth century. Today Ludlow racecourse is a National Hunt Course with a right Right-handed race track. The chase course is flat with sharp bends and measures one mile and 4 furlongs in length. There is also a hurdles track at the venue which measures 150 yards longer than the the chase course and is slightly undulating, with easier bends. Ludlow plays host to around 16 mid-week jump meetings a year and offers an enjoyable and informal day’s racing in a friendly club atmosphere.
