In light of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the British Horseracing Authority has indicated that racing will be cancelled from Wednesday 18th March until at least the end of April. For full information, please click here
The going for the next raceday at Pontefract will appear when we have further information as to the timing of that raceday.
Further updates will appear here when available.
We will have an additional security presence at selected Race Meetings in 2020.
Security marshalls will be carrying out bag searches at ALL entrances ahead of racing so please make sure that you allow plenty of time for admission into the Racecourse.
These measures are for the safety and security of all racegoers so that everyone has an enjoyable time with us with fantastic racing and brilliant entertainment.
Racegoers are permitted to bring a small amount of alcohol as part of a picnic into any enclosure OTHER THAN the Premier Enclosure.
This equates to a maximum of 4 cans per person or half a bottle of wine per person. However, please note that no glass bottles can be brought in to the enclosures. If you would rather bring spirits, please bring the pre-mixed cans.
There are a number of fast food outlets around the Racecourse, as well as Restaurants and Bars. A full list of all food outlets is available here.
