Set in West Yorkshire, Pontefract is one of the most popular tracks in the north of England.


Horse racing is known to have taken place around Pontefract during the eighteenth century, but the first grandstand on the current course is recorded as being built in 1801.

The course now stages 16 flat race meetings between April and October of each calendar year including 3 Family Sunday afternoons, 3 entertaining Evenings and 10 marvellous midweek afternoons!
