A tribute to TAUNTON Racecourse. Situated in the heart of the Somerset countryside with breathtaking views of the Blackwood Hills, Taunton races is Britain’s youngest National Hunt Racecourse, with around 14 races held throughout the year between November and April.

The current Racecourse has emerged from a great tradition of racing in Somerset. Taunton Castle was the scene of some gory occasions under the reign of James II who was known to be a keen follower of the races. The racecourse lies just a few miles from the 12th Century Castle in the parish of Orchard Portman.

Taunton races held the very first meeting on 21 September 1927. It was the last new racecourse to open in Great Britain until Great Leighs staged its first meeting in April 2008.

You are guaranteed to have a great day out at Taunton races.

Course Description
National Hunt - there are two kinds of racing on the one mile two furlong (2km) Taunton track. Steeplechases over seven, four foot six inch high fences and also the Hurdle Racing which is over seven, three foot three inch hurdles.

The course at Taunton is approximately one and a quarter miles long and its oval shape has created a number of sharp bends that lead to an uphill final flourish on the home straight. Due to its tight turns and tricky fences this course favours those horses that are sharp and agile.
