Leicester Racecourse, home to the Listed Leicestershire Stakes, was established in 1882 when it was transferred from Victoria Park.
Some very famous horses have raced on the famous turf, such as Zilzal, Diminuendo and Time Charter on the flat and jumping stars such as Cheltenham Gold Cup winners Silver Buck and Burrough Hill Lad plus Grand National winners Grittar, Corbiere and Seagram.
Over the past 10 years the racecourse has seen major investments with a new state of the art Grandstand, incorporating the panoramic Nelson Restaurant which seats up to 250 guests.
In 2006 the new spectacular Club Room was opened which includes a private raised viewing terrace.
Leicester racecourse now boasts some of the most up to date modern facilities for a racecourse of its kind and also hosts a comprehensive professional conference centre.
