Beverley racecourse

Situated to the south east of York and north west of the Humber estuary, it is a stiff flat track with the Hilary Needler Trophy in May for two-year-old fillies being its principal race.

Racing on the site at the Westwood and Hurn meadows first took place in 1690 and a stand first built in 1767.
