Doncaster Racecourse Corporate Hospitality Packages 2024
Doncaster is one of the oldest established centres for horse racing in Britain, with records of regular race meetings going back to the 16th century.
In 1600 the corporation tried to end the races because of the number of ruffians they attracted, but by 1614 it acknowledged failure and instead marked out a racecourse.
Doncaster is a left-handed, pear-shaped track of around 1 mile 7½ furlongs which are primarily flat and cater for both Flat racing and National Hunt racing.
The two most famous races at Town Moor, as it is known, are St. Leger and The Lincoln.
Racegoers flock to both, knowing they will get both great racing and top-quality hospitality.
Each has an exciting history.
In 1776 Colonel Anthony St. Leger founded a race in which five horses ran. It was won by Allabaculia and has remained in existence and become the world’s oldest classic.
The prestigious four-day St. Leger Festival, held every September, is acclaimed as the premier sporting occasion of the autumn calendar.
The Lincoln has very different origins, showing how Doncaster has taken over events whose traditional homes have closed.
The Lincolnshire Handicap was first run over two miles at Lincoln in August 1849 and continued for more than 100 years. Doncaster took it over in 1965 following the Lincoln course’s closure.
But Doncaster is by no means confined to two races, however stand-out.
Whilst, after more than four hundred years of racing, St. Leger is undoubtedly still the highlight of Doncaster’s year, throughout the racing calendar, there is an entire programme, with flat racing in the summer and jumping action all winter.
And Doncaster has been innovative, for example, in 1992 when it staged the first-ever Sunday meeting on a British racecourse when a crowd of 23,000 turned up despite no betting.
Doncaster promises a hospitality experience to remember, showcasing stunning scenery against a spacious and ultra-modern Grandstand.
The Leger Stand was opened in 1990 and enjoys character features and classic horse racing art throughout. Located near the winning post, there are four floors of balconies, with the advantage of overlooking the County Stand’s Champagne Lawn. The five-storey Lazarus Grandstand opened in 2007 following a £34 million redevelopment and has exceptional panoramic views.
Corporate boxes and private suites are also well catered for, and there is a wide range of places to eat and drink.
“Our spectacular race day hospitality, conference and exhibition facilities truly match the exceptional quality of our racing,” states the Doncaster management.
They add: “For sheer spectacle, atmosphere and excitement a day at Doncaster Racecourse is a tradition that is hard to beat. Racedays at Town Moor have been drawing appreciative crowds for centuries, and Doncaster has long been regarded as one of the finest racecourses in Europe.
“A day at the races is as casual or as formal as you want to make it. For most, it’s an excuse to dress up for the occasion, especially on Ladies Day when many ladies wear their best outfits and hats – not obligatory, but great fun! A friendly Yorkshire welcome awaits you.” Bravo!
