Hereford Races

Hereford Racecourse is a right-handed, oblong-shaped British horse racing venue just outside the town of the same name, close to the border between England and Wales.

The track closed at the end of 2012, but still continued being used for Point to Point races before reopening for National Hunt action in 2016. Hereford horse racing also had pureblood Arabian Flat events while closed for Rules racing.

As it is a sharp and flat track, speedy horses are suited best by it. Hereford races are jumps only now and a full circuit of the course is about a mile-and-a-half.

Hereford Horse Racing Tips

  • Richard Johnson is one of only two jockeys who rode more than 10 winners at Hereford Racecourse from 2016 to March 2020. His 14 wins there in that period came at a 17 per cent strike rate.
  • Charlie Deutsch, stable jockey to local trainer Venetia Williams, was the other, after getting the leg up on 11 winning horses. His 22 per cent success ratio wasn’t quite as good as Aidan Coleman, however, who posted the best average of 29 per cent.
  • Venetia Williams was the leading handler at Hereford races, saddling 16 winners at 20 per cent. Four other trainers had better win-to-run ratios than her in that time, though. They were Kim Bailey (21 per cent) Warren Greatrex (22), Philip Hobbs (23) and Dan Skelton (25).

The jockey's view

Bryony Frost
By Bryony Frost - Most successful female jump jockey in history

Hereford Racecourse is a fairly simple track, with not much of a run-in. It’s a flat finish but two out from the end there is a difficult fence, then you come off the brow of the bend and go downhill. If you are in front off the apex then you can usually hold on because of the flat finish.

Hereford Racecourse Behind Closed Doors

Hereford 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 Hereford Racecourse keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

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