Chelmsford City Racecourse is Britain’s youngest and provides flat racing. It was developed to tackle the largest unserved market in British Racing. Prior to its existence, there was no racecourse in Essex, East London or Hertfordshire. In fact the closest racecourse, Newmarket, is over 50 miles away.
The anti-clockwise track wraps itself around the grandstand, parade ring, betting ring and restaurants as all facilities are on the inside of the track. Chelmsford is the home to three exciting races, the Cardinal Stakes in April, the Chelmer Fillies’ Stakes and the Queen Charlotte Fillies’ Stakes, which was won last year by the 2018, 1,000 Guineas winner, Billesdon Brook.
