The National Hunt racecourse is situated just 10 miles from Lincoln and has been selected as one of the best locations to visit on the east coast. Its most high profile fixture is the Summer Plate Meeting, normally staged on the third Saturday in July. This features the two-and-a-quarter miles Summer Hurdle and the Summer Plate.
Both of these are among the most valuable National Hunt races staged in Britain during the summer months. The other meeting which gains huge audiences is the Prelude Meeting in September which coincides with the famous Beer Festival.
