Wetherby Racecourse

The racecourse is located in the market town of Wetherby which is just over 10 miles from the busy northern city of Leeds. It is the only racecourse in Yorkshire that only hosts National Hunt meetings.

The oval shaped course is thought of as fair flat course that wil suit jumpers that are long-striding.

The course hosts around 10 meetings per year with standout races being the grade 2 Charlie Hall Chase which is held in October on the same day as the other major race the West Yorkshire Hurdle Race which is also a grade 2 event.

The attracts many of the top northern based trainers with the top two over the last few racing seasons being Howard Johnson who is based at County Durham and Donald McCain Jnr from Cholmondeley in Cheshire. The top two jockeys here are Denis O´Regan and Brian Hughes.
