Wolverhampton racecourse boasts one of the world’s busiest racetracks. It is a thoroughbred racing ground located in West Midlands, England and has a one-mile circumference. The most unique feature about the Wolverhampton course is its left hand turns, a feature that gives it more commonality with United States racing tracks than its UK counterparts.
Apart from being the traditional home for horse racing, Wolverhampton racecourse is an entertainment spot. The course is located in a beautiful park a mile north of Wolverhampton city . If travelling by a car, you can access it through the M6 at J12 and the M54 at J2. If you intend to get there by train, then the station is approximately one mile from the tracks.
This famous course could as well be termed as the racecourse that never sleeps. It does not have rainy or sunny days -it has been built such that doors are shut in the cold and rainy days thus preventing any form of unfriendly weather. The racecourse is fitted with floodlights and this has made entertainment a never-ending activity.
The history of the racecourse comes in patches. Although racing started and carried on as a flourishing business as early as 1825, the property was sold after 53 years and closed for almost a decade. The track was however resurrected by the Dunstall Park club. It mostly operated as an exhibition hall, a hotel and restaurant that attracted visitors from all over. Ultimately, Arena Leisure Plc purchased and took over the grounds and is mostly responsible for all the fixtures held to date.
The racecourse has played host to notable races such as the Lady Wulfruna Stakes and the Lincoln Trial Stakes.
Modern facilities have ensured that racing events keep up with the times while at the same time retaining its entertainment value. Packages are tailor-made for new visitors and the occasional race goer. Private boxes are made for you if you do not want to mix with rest of the folk. Comfort and entertainment are a given.
