Chelmsford City Racecourse

Chelmsford City Racecourse has an interesting history. Opened in 2008 as Great Leighs Racecourse, it soon closed and was reopened under its new name in 2015.

It is an all-weather polytrack course and most of the racing here takes place under floodlights. This attracts evening visitors, who can enjoy excellent hospitality facilities.

The fact that the grandstand is in the middle of the one-mile, left-handed track means, however, that runners are visible to the naked eye only for the final couple of furlongs.

Meetings are held most Thursday evenings and the racing is largely low-grade, though many leading trainers like the course’s sweeping bends and often send very good horses here for preparation races.

Chelmsford City Racecourse Tips

  • Mark Johnston is a big fan of Chelmsford City Racecourse. The Yorkshire-based trainer sends plenty of runners to Essex and does well with them.
  • Saeed bin Suroor is more selective and has an excellent strike rate with the horses he sends from his base in Newmarket during the summer months.
  • It’s also worth noting when John Gosden and Sir Michael Stoute have runners at Chelmsford City.
  • Similarly, jockeys like Ryan Moore and Frankie Dettori don’t often ride here but when they do the results are often impressive.
  • The draw makes little difference at the course but it is worth restricting your interest to horses that race prominently here.

Chelmsford City Races Behind Closed Doors

Chelmsford City races are currently being run behind closed doors because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation.

This is set to be reviewed and updated in line with government advice, with Chelmsford City races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

It’s still worth checking Chelmsford City races fixtures because the decision to allow spectators in could change. If you book tickets to a Chelmsford City Race course event that is then moved to behind closed doors, refunds will be processed through the official course website.
