About Chester Racecourse

Perhaps the most idiosyncratic track in the British fixture list, a high draw can spell the end of any real chances in sprint races around Chester. The tight, tuning course has held racing since the mid 16th century, when then mayor of Chester, Henry Gee introduced an annual meeting on the Roodee.

May’s five day meeting sees thousands descending on the Roman course. Subsequent Derby and Oaks winners have made the step up to Group company at the meeting, while the ultra-competitive Chester Cup has seen future Ascot Gold Cup and even Fighting Fifth Hurdle winners land the spoils this century.
