Great Yarmouth- British Racecourse

Flat racing in Norfolk.

About Great Yarmouth Racecourse:

Yarmouth Racecourse's proximity to the Newmarket training yards means that it is always well supported by the top flat trainers and jockeys whose horses enjoy the benefits of a well-drained surface and the opportunity to run over a straight mile. Being a flat track, galloping in nature, big, long-striding horses are particularly well suited to the test this course offers. Great Yarmouth Racecourse is situated on the northern edge of Great Yarmouth only a few minutes’ walk from the beach. Great Yarmouth is one of the only racecourses in the country to feature a straight mile, making it an important racing venue in both trainer's and spectator's calendars. Children under 18 are free when accompanied by an adult and are permitted into all enclosures.

Course Details: Great Yarmouth is a left-handed, oblong course of one mile five furlongs in circumference.

There is also a straight course, over which races of up to one mile can be run, popular particularly for two-year-olds. Ability to see the distance out thoroughly is most important.
