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.
