York Races FAQs
York RaceCourse Guides
The Knavesmire track at York is one of the oldest courses in the UK. Having held racing since 1730, it's a must for every racing fan to visit.
Featuring only one course, it's a left-handed track and can host races up to a distance of two miles and six furlongs. However, the feature races tend to start at the one-mile two-furlong post.
What to look for when selecting a runner at York is one who can often come late in a race. However, there should be no difference for runners no matter the stall number as it's quite a flat course, which is also wide, meaning there should be congestion at the turns.
Often, runners will take to the middle of the course for better ground, especially if the conditions are testing, as this could mean a more difficult race.
