Kiplingcotes Finishing Post
Kiplingcotes Finishing Post
The Kiplingcotes (also spelled Kipling Cotes) race is the oldest in England having taken place every year since 1519. It is run every spring. One quirk of the ancient rules means the second place rider usually receives more in prize money than the winner.
It might not look much like a proper racecourse but the clerk is only paid 5 shillings a year for maintaining it.
