York Racecourse  York racecourse is a horse racing track located in York, North Yorkshire, England. The racecourse is well known for hosting flat races, and has been voted as “UK racecourse of the year” and “Northern racecourse of the year” on a regular basis. So far, it is the third biggest racecourse in the whole of Britain, attracting a crowd of 350,000each year. It is owned by York Racecourse Knavesmire LLP, and hosts a good number of races annually. Some of the notable races held there include; Dante Stakes, Ebor Handicap, International Stakes, and Nunthorpe Stakes.

Racing in York racecourse is said to have begun way back during the Roman times. However, it was until the year 1530 that the sport was recognized and supported by the city corporation. Since then, a number of races have been taking place in the racetrack, and by 19th century, it was able to host two major meetings, The Spring Meeting, and The Yorkshire Union Hunt. It hosted its first music concert in the 22nd of September, 1984.

The racecourse takes pride in hosting Britain’s famous races. For example, Duke of York Stakes. This is a Group 2 flat horse race in which horses three years and above take part in. The horses compete by running over 1,207
meters. It usually occurs in May of every year, and was first inaugurated in the year 1968. Dante Stakes is another major race hosted by the racecourse, and also allows in horses aged 3 and above. It takes place over 2,063 meters and takes place in May.


This year, there are a number of fixtures planned out in the racecourse. Summer music Saturday makes the highlight of them all. It is scheduled for Saturday the 30th of June, and Paloma Faith will be performing right after the sporting action. On 27th and 28th of July will be the Music showcase Weekend, where Sir Tom Jones and Boyzone will be performing.

Attempting to build winning horse tips  The ability to bet on horse racing is made easier through the number of bookmakers who want to appease their many customers. After choosing which bookie you want to place most of your horse racing bets with, the obstacle you will come up against is working out how to heighten your bet’s chances of winning. There’s no way of guaranteeing winning bets or everyone would do it, so you have to rely on picking out a horse with the pedigree to finish first in a race that you’ve placed money on.

More experienced punters will find it easy to pick out what they see as being a winning horse racing tip from the hundreds of horses running in a single day, but for those with less practice at it, it can be like trying to find a needle in a haystack. It would help to abide by the crucial criteria used for picking likely horse racing winners, which is the same selection of boxes you need to tick when choosing a horse racing tipster to get behind, as you’ll only be able to find a winner elsewhere if the site you’re following pick their horse bets based on facts. One site we’d recommend for horse racing tips is The Winners Enclosure who offer daily betting tips for each race on daily!

What goes into winning horse racing bets?

Any horse racing tipster that has a genuine record for winning will swear by the use of thorough research in the bets they make. Without this, your horse bets will be lacking in any of the reasoning they need to stand a chance of landing in your favour, and it certainly makes it harder to back any horse that you have no reason for believing in. Even by merely looking into the current form of the horse you’re backing, their weight, record in similar races, and their superiority over other horses in the race, you’ll stand a chance of landing your bet.

Even if you’ve decided to refrain from using a horse racing tipster, you can still use a few to compare the bet you’ve created. If they were to have the same bet as you, it could be a sign that you’re on the right track, but if they don’t, it’s not a sign that you’ve wasted your time as long as you try to find out what you’re missing from your horse tip. When you’re finally ready to back any horse tips you’ve come up with, it would be advised to shop around for the best price on bookmaker websites, with some offering stronger odds by backing the horse early, and others boosting the price on selected favourites nearer the time.

Jockeying for Position  The life of a jockey can have many ups and downs and especially in the early days of establishing yourself, it can be a real slog. There are many stories of the determination, effort and endless hours involved in getting to the standard required to take on the cream of the crop, and impress horse trainers and owners with no shortage of options to choose from.

It’s always interesting to hear the stories of where someones career started and the path that led them to success. Sure some in racing have family connections or a ‘leg up’ in some regard, but others have no family background in the sport at all and forged a path through their love of the sport. Nowadays programs like Brixton’s Ebony Horse Club offer disadvantaged inner city kids a chance to get into the sport, so there are definitely opportunities where you wouldn’t always expect to find them.

Fast forwarding to the point of success, one sure fire way to go to the next level and truly make a name for yourself in horse racing is by breaking records or achieving a ‘one off’ of some form or another. Just look at Frankie Dettori’s ‘Magnificent Seven’, it was front page news at the time and is still clearly remembered, due the nature of the achievement (winning all seven races on the Ascot racecard in September 1996) , the fact that some punters were richly rewarded for following Frankie on the day (to the handsome tune of £500,000 in one case – at cumulative odds of 25,051-1) and the aspect of ‘sticking it to the bookies’.

Perhaps the primary way of immortalising yourself in racing though is by winning one of the big races. The liked of the Cheltenham Gold Cup and the cherry on the cake without a doubt, the Grand National. It’s nothing short of a one way ticket into the history books if you win the National. A combination of right horse, time, training, the going and a healthy dollop of luck on the day can dictate how it all pans out, but winning the Grand National is certainly the dream of most jockeys, trainers and owners. I’m busily keeping an eye on the latest Grand National news to see who is likely to make a name for themself this year in the 2019 Grand National!

As with many aspects of life, success breeds success. As a jockey for instance, once you’ve proved yourself and shown a battling spirit, with a few grinding big wins under your belt, you’ll get more opportunities to prove your credentials at the highest level.
