The History of Doncaster Races
The history of Doncaster Races is one of the oldest in the country. Horse racing dates back to the 16th century but it never nearly happened at all thanks to the amount of ‘ruffians’ attending the races.
The problem was resolved (i.e, ignored) and the first permanent racetrack was marked out in 1614. History was made at Doncaster in 1992 when the first ever Sunday meeting was held. Despite gambling being banned on a Sunday, 23,000 people turned up for the occasion.
Doncaster Racecourse underwent a £34 million facelift in 2006 and 2007 to make it one of the most modern racecourses in the country.
