Venue Development

Recently the racecourse has had over £11million worth of investment, improving facilities and building an all-weather Tapeta track on the outer of the jumps track. This new track currently stands as the only floodlit all-weather straight mile in the world. Further development plans were submitted in 2018 for more events space and residential accommodation.
