Beverley Racecourse

Beverley Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in the town of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

An annual meeting at Beverley was first established in 1767. Before that races had only occasionally been run there.[1] Then, for a short period between 1798 and 1805 racing once again stopped.[2] Later in the 19th century a three-day meeting was taking place annually in the week after York's May meeting.[2][3] In 2012, Beverley hosted racing on 19 days.[4] Its most prestigious races being two Listed races - the Hilary Needler Trophy for two-year-olds in May and Beverley Bullet Sprint over 5 furlongs in August for three-year-olds and up.[5]

The racecourse is a right-handed flat course,[6] that is just over 1 mile 3 furlongs.[6] It is predominantly flat but with a stiff, uphill finish and tight turns.[7] Beverley has the most pronounced "draw bias" on a UK racecourse on its 5 furlong course. The sharp right hand bend and the fact that the ground runs away to the left make a low draw (i.e. on the inside rail) much more advantageous than a high draw (i.e. on the wide outside and on ground sloping right to left).[8]

The first grandstand was commissioned for the racecourse on 22 May 1767 at a cost of £1,000.[1][9] A £90,000 stand was opened in Tattersalls enclosure in 1968.[10]

In August 2018, it was announced that planning permission was being sought for a £4.8 million grandstand to replace the existing 1960s structure, with an expected completion of April 2021.[11]

It has been described as an "unpretentious but agreeable" racecourse.[10]
