York Ebor Festival Racecourse - Bet on York Races

York Racecourse Tote Ebor Festival Meeting - 16 - 18 August 2017
york horse racing meetings

York racecourse is one of the best in the country and holds top quality flat racing meetings throughout the season. In 2017 the Royal Ascot meeting is being held at York.

One of the best meetings held annually at York is the Ebor Festival, 17 - 19 August, with the showpiece race being the Tote Ebor on the middle of the three days.


Tuesday 16th August 2017 - Juddmonte International & Great Voltigeur
Wedesday 17th August 2017 - tote Ebor Handicap & Yorkshire Oaks
Thursday 18th August 2017 - VC Bet Nunthorpe Stakes
First race at 1.20pm each day.

TV: ITV or ITV4 is covering all the main races, starting with the first race each day. All races will be shown on RUK.

The Ground: The ground is currently Good, 6.7 on the Going Stick (Monday pm). Light showers are forecast for Thursday.

The Course: York is a flat, left-handed track with sweeping bends. It has a reputation for favouring horses that run up with the pace.

The Draw: It’s a common misconception that sprints (5f-7f) at York favour horses drawn low. Although a slightly higher percentage of low-drawn horses have won since 1997, more money would have been made backing horses drawn high.

Punting Pointer: This year, Richard Hills has an amazing strike rate when teaming up with Sir Michael Stoute. He has ridden 8 winners from 16 mounts, including Imperial Stride (25-1) and Mostashaar (10-3) at the Royal meeting at York. 15 of the 16 horses have been placed. They team up with Maraahel in the Juddmonte.

The York Ebor Festival is a meeting of superlatives, with York’s richest race in the Juddmonte International, most famous race in the totepool Ebor, fastest race in the VC Bet Nunthorpe Stakes, and prior to this year- the longest race in the Weatherbys Insurance Lonsdale Cup. Wherever you look there are more superlatives. It is a combination of the flat racecourse looking at its best in high summer, which is what it is designed for, with a chance for people to enjoy the lawned areas. The horses that will come are amongst the very best in their respective age and distance groups so this is really the premiership for many of the competitors.
Racing on all three days there are seven races starting at 1.20 p.m., with the gates opening on each day at 11-15 a.m. There are seven races every day, with record prize money of almost £2 million on offer, a rise of 9% on last year.
The story of Tuesday’s top-notch programme would be:
· The Juddmonte International Stakes The jewel in York’s crown, this famous Group 1 race with a total prize fund of £460,000 certainly lives up to it’s International handle this year; Japanese superstar, Zenno Rob Roy, Japan’s ‘Horse Of The Year’ in 2004 is preparing to throw down the gauntlet, to the Italian-trained Electrocutionist. Amongst the domestic based stars are Doyen a previous winner of the King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Diamond Stakes and last year’s runner-up, Norse Dancer.
· The Daily Telegraph Great Voltigeur Stakes This Group 2 race should provide significant clues regarding the final Classic of the season next month’s Ladbrokes St. Leger Stakes at Doncaster, with Melrose Avenue the Mark Johnston trained winner at Royal Ascot at York to the fore in the market. Keen to follow last year’s winner Rule Of Law who completed the double for the Godolphin team
· The Weatherbys Insurance Lonsdale Cup Now rightly established as a Group 2 race for leading stayers over two miles it is York’s longest race; won in the past by horses such as Persian Punch, Celeric, Double Eclipse, Royal Rebel and Boreas.
· The Ladbroke Knavesmire Stakes A cracking start to the proceedings, this Handicap contest over a mile and a half should attract a good turnout. It was won last year by Sualda, trained at Malton by Richard Fahey
· The Acomb Stakes A Listed race for precocious two-year-olds, won last year by Elliots World, trained at Middleham by Mark Johnston.
· The Irwin Mitchell Solicitors Stakes Juveniles also take part in this Nursery Handicap, won last year by the Tim Easterby-trained Space Shuttle, who went on to win in Listed race company.
· The Patrington Haven Leisure Park Handicap Stakes Malton trainer Richard Fahey produced Fonthill Road and Watching to be first and second in this sprint contest over six furlongs, with only a short head separating them in a head-bobbing finish. It also completed a first and last race double for Fahey.
Wednesday is totepool Ebor Day, with the action and drama guaranteed………
· The totepool Ebor Heritage Handicap Europe’s richest handicap race with a total prize fund of £200,000. This contest over a mile and three-quarters was first held at York in 1843, and is the oldest race at the Festival and has been sponsored since 1976 by totepool.
· The Aston Upthorpe Yorkshire Oaks Eswarah, the heroine of The Epsom Oaks last month, is a likely participant in this Group 1 race for star fillies
· The Scottish Equitable Gimcrack Stakes One of Britain’s best-known races for two-year-olds with Classic and big race aspirations. First held on the Knavesmire in 1846, this Group 2 contest is coming of age with its sponsors having enjoyed the support of Scottish Equitable plc since 1985. Tradition once demanded that the winning owner provided ‘six dozen of champagne to the Gimcrack Club Dinner’. Many years have passed since the successful owner fulfilled that obligation; however, he or she is still invited to provide a keynote speech at the Dinner in December.
· The Motability Supported By Royal & SunAlliance Handicap Stakes Another quality handicap, this time over the extended mile and a quarter, which once again draws attention to the charity, Motability. The Kevin Darley-ridden Dunaskin was the impressive winner last season
· The Costcutter Roses Stakes This Listed contest for juvenile sprinters over the minimum distance of five furlongs has once again been supported by the Yorkshire-based supermarket chain.
· The Convivial Maiden Stakes Two-year-olds also line up for this race over six furlongs, supported for the third year by long-established York-based sports outfitters, Newitts.
· The Eventmasters Falmouth Handicap Stakes Three-year-old sprinters are put through their paces in this race sponsored for the third year fourth year by Eventmasters, the Edgbaston-based sports event management company.

Thursday is ‘Ladies Day’ featuring
· The VC Bet Nunthorpe Stakes. Chineur, the King’s Stand Stakes winner at Royal Ascot at York, could well return for this prestigious sprint in search of Group 1 glory. He his trained in France by Mikel Delzangles and may well face Bahamian Pirate last year’s winner trained in North Yorkshire by David Nicholls, the nine-year-old became the oldest horse to win a Group 1 race in Britain since the Pattern race series was created in 1971
· The Jaguar Cars Lowther Stakes This Group 2 race for leading two-year-old fillies should attract potential stars of the future such as Flashy Wings.
· The VC Bet City Of York Stakes A Listed race over seven furlongs, supported for the first time by VC Bet as a precursor to their continued sponsorship of the afternoon’s big race, The Nunthorpe Stakes.
· The Persimmon Homes Handicap Stakes This valuable Handicap race over one mile usually attracts a good turnout and is supported for the second year by long-standing sponsors at York, Britain’s leading housebuilders, the locally-based Persimmon Homes.
· The Melrose Handicap Stakes Lost Soldier Three won this well-known race for stayers last year, which is named after James Melrose, a former chairman of The York Race Committee for 50 years (1875 to 1925).
· The European Breeders Fund Galtres Stakes A Listed race for fillies and mares - one of nine races supported by the EBF at York this season.
· The Jacob’s Creek Nursery Handicap Stakes Two-year-olds battle for the honour of winning the final race of the Festival and racegoers will be able to sample the latest summer ranges from the Australian wine maker.
Mark Tompkins and Keiren Fallon lead the way for the awards given to the top trainer and jockey of the season at York. With four winners so far this term, Newmarket-based Yorkshireman Tompkins heads the table for the Minster Jaguar Trophy, while Fallon is in pole position to retain his Budget Car and Van Rental – sponsored award presented to York’s leading rider

As usual on ‘Ladies Day’, there will be a competition to find the ‘Best-Dressed Lady Racegoers, this year supported by fashion designer Ann-Louise Roswald .who is offering an outfit valued at over £1,000 to the lucky winner.

Elsewhere off the track, York has continues to work to improve the experience of going racing on the Knavesmire and this year will see four giant screens including one that overlooks the Paddock. The refreshment facilities have been given a boost by the creation of additional outlets on the Bustardthorpe Lawn and Weighing Room lawn. Racegoers in need of cash at the track will benefit from the expansion of the Cash Back service offered through totepool; this facility will now be available from five sites including one in Course Enclosure.
York is keen to work with its partners to explain the world of racing and turftrax will be operating its speed sensing technology to the benefit of Channel Four viewers. In another innovation the Channel will be able to record the process of any Stewards Enquiries that may happen during the week and then show them to viewers so helping to explain how the decisions which affect racing professionals and punters are reached.
The Winner’s Enclosure and prize presentation for the totepool Ebor will be in a new location in front of the main stands as the track seeks to celebrate the winner of the race with more of the crowd.
It was always the intention of York to work with various partners such as the City of York Council and North Yorkshire Police to study the events of Royal Ascot at York, with the aim of improving York racedays. Whilst we accept that everyone’s experience of a journey is individual, there was widespread praise from racegoers and racing professionals for how the traffic plan was working by the end of the week. The City of York Council intends to re-introduce some of the important elements of the traffic system used during Royal Ascot at York for the Ebor Festival.
