Chester by Paul Hart.


Chester by Paul Hart.

Racing at this pretty and ancient venue dates back as far as the mid 14th century, making it the oldest racecourse in Britain. Bounded by the River Dee and a Roman city wall, the Roodee is the tightest and smallest course of all. The oldest record of a race here is that for a prize of a silver bell woth 111 shillings on Shrove Tuesday in 1540, continuing until 1609. The completely flat track is only a shade longer than a mile and can cause problems for larger horses that often find it difficult to get into their stride. In longer races, the competitors pass the standds no less than three times covering nearly two miles and three furlongs. The most famous of the long races is The Chester Cup, first run in 1824, being the highlight of a three day meet in May.

About all editions :

Full Print :



The group three Chester Vase run over 1 mile 4 furlongs and 66 yardds was first run in 1907 and is regarded as a trial of stamina for Epsom Derby hopefuls. Winners of the Vase that went on to Derby success include Papyrus 1923, Hyperion 1933, Windsor Lad 1934, Henbit 1980 and the charismatic Shergar in 1981. Another major race in the Chester calendar is the Ormonde Stakes, named after the unbeaten Triple Crown winner of 1886. A favourite for four year olds, the Derby winner Teenoso won in 1984. The tight course offers little hope for runners that find themselves out of position at the final bend. With only a 230 yard run in to the line, a low draw for starters of sprint races is often decisive. The lovely Chester course is a favourite for many punters offering spectacular race views from almost all aspects.
