RIPON races is known as the “Garden Racecourse”. Horse racing takes place during the spring and summer and the two main features are the Great St Wilfrid Handicap and the Ripon Champion Two year Old Trophy.

The Great St Wilfrid is a famous old sprint handicap over six and takes place in mid-August. It is the richest race at the North Yorkshire venue and is a strong trial for the Ayr Gold Cup. The undulating track at Ripon races can catch out some horses and not every animal can handle the contours. Many horses can get lost on the track and course form is a huge bonus. A high draw against the rail in sprints can also be an advantage.
