Beverley Racecourse
Beverley Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue.
An annual meeting at Beverley was first established in 1767. Later in the 19th century a three-day meeting was taking place annually in the week after York's May meeting. In 2012, Beverley hosted racing on 19 days.
The racecourse is a right-handed flat course, that is just over 1 mile 3 furlongs. It is predominantly flat but with a stiff, uphill finish and tight turns. Beverley has the most pronounced "draw bias" on a UK racecourse on its 5 furlong course.
The first grandstand was commissioned for the racecourse on 22 May 1767.
Westwood Pasture, Beverley :: TA0239
The Westwood is one of four pastures that are found on the edge of Beverley. The Westwood is now mainly open grassland and woodland. There is a golf course and racecourse on the Westwood.
The wellbeing of the pastures is overseen by the Pasture Masters, a group of men elected from the Freemen of Beverley each March. Although the Pasture Act of 1836 clarified the right of the Pasture Masters to administer and enforce their bylaws, it did not state who ‘owned’ the land. In 1978 the courts decided that the pastures were owned by the then Borough Council; it is now ‘owned’ by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
