As well as being named Racecourse of the Year nine times since 2000, York has also acted as stand-in for some of the calendars biggest events. The Knavesmire venue stepped in to host Royal Ascot in 2005, and replaced Doncaster as the venue for the 2006 St Leger. However, York is one of the country’s premier venues in its own right. Home to the UK’s richest handicap, the £1 million Ebor Handicap in August, as well as the Grade 1 Yorkshire Oaks, Juddmonte International and Nunthorpe Stakes, York has also thrust future Derby winners into the limelight having tasted victory in the Dante Stakes. A very fair course, the cream often rises to the top at York.
