Tudor Kings and Queens ruled England when horse racing began on The Roodee.
There is no more historic racecourse in the land. Where once the waters of the River Dee washed-up to the city walls, thousands of spectators stand today cheering on their fancies to the finishing line.
There are a few more thrilling sights in British Racing than the horses thundering into the final furlong at Chester Racecourse, a circular course that makes exceptional demands on the capabilities of jockeys and their mounts with races run continually on the turn.
More than two hundred thousand people a year visit Chester Racecourse for ‘a day at the races’. There is something for everyone from the family seeking a relaxing Sunday picnic to the company entertaining guests in the lavish surroundings of the Racecourse.
The traditional racing highlights of the season are during the 3 day May meeting when the world of flat racing focuses on Chester.
The most popular meetings during evenings and on Saturdays are in the summer. It was Chester Racecourse that showed how to succeed with Sunday racing and tens of thousands now pack the Roodee for the annual family funday in August.
