A Guide to Wetherby Race Course

A Guide To Wetherby Race Course

Situated 12 miles from Leeds in England, Wetherby Racecourse first opened its doors in 1891 are a purely National Hunt jumps course. However, in 2015 Wetherby introduced Flat racing to its roster.

The feature meeting at Wetherby is the Charlie Hall Chase which is run in November each year. The race takes part over 3 miles and 45 yards and is open to all horses aged five years and over. The race itself has 18 fences to negotiate.

The Wetherby course is a left handed galloping oval shape. It has nine fences for the horses to jump over its 1 mile and 4 furlongs circuit including 2 open ditches  (fences 2 and 5). The bends on the track are not too tight and are easy to navigate. Wetherby is known as a quick track.

The Flat course is run on the same circuit as the Jumps course. Because of the layout of the course there is no straight sprint track, so a spur has been built to allow sprint racing over 5 furlongs.
