Pontefract Races, A profile & tribute to the racecourse.

Next Race Day is 18 Days away at Pontefract, Tuesday, April 11th 2017

Starters orders.. and They're off! at Pontefract Races the longest continuous circuit of its kind in Europe.

Pontefract Racecourse is one of the best appointed courses of its kind in the country. There are modern bars and refreshment areas in all enclosures and the racing programme has been greatly improved in recent years.

Closed circuit television is in operation on every race day, with televisions in all bars and refreshment areas. There are modern Tote facilities and kiosks throughout the stands. There is an off-course betting office in the paddock and second enclosure.

One 'claim to fame' for the racecourse is that it is the longest continuous racing circuit in the country, at a little short of 2m 1f. This was exceeded when York completed its circuit for the holding of the Royal Ascot festival in 2005, and whilst York remains a 'circuit', there are no races held around the new link.

For a great day at the races its a dead cert at Pontefract racecourse.

The Course: Flat left-handed, fairly sharp, but a testing track.
