Thirsk Races

Thirsk Racecourse is a friendly Yorkshire venue that stages flat racing meetings throughout the summer between March and September.

The track is a left-handed oval of one mile and two furlongs and, though it appears a straightforward course to ride, there are some dips and undulations that can catch out the unbalanced horse and cost them the race.

Thirsk races plays host to a Classic Trial in April and the Thirsk Hunt Cup in May and is extremely popular with northern trainers.

Thirsk Racing Tips

  • Richard Fahey, David O’Meara and Tim Easterby all send plenty of runners to Thirsk races, one of their local tracks, and pick up a substantial amount of prize money there as a result.
  • Sir Michael Stoute sends very few runners but has an eye-catching strike rate when one of his charges puts in an appearance at Thirsk Racecourse. Daniel Tudhope is the rider to follow at the track.
  • When the ground is firm, high numbers have a significant advantage in sprints on the straight. However, that switches in favour of runners with a low draw when the ground is soft.
  • On the round course, horses drawn high do well in races over seven furlongs and a mile.

Thirsk Races Behind Closed Doors

Thirsk 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 Thirsk races keen to welcome back punters as soon as it is safe to do so.

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