& welcome to a tribute to Catterick Races|
Horse racing at Catterick. The first recorded race meeting at Catterick Racecourse took place on 22nd April 1783 and it was not until 1906 that a stand was built.
In 1923 the first race company was formed. Catterick Racecourse is now a fine blend of both old and new with the framework of the original still in place but with a great many improvements within, including five luxury hospitality suites, which have undergone recent refurbishment.
