The racecourse is a 1.25 mile flat track with left handed bends (meaning the runners race anti-clockwise). The six furlong home straight provides some thrilling finishes up to the post which is located directly in front of the main pavilion. For racegoers, it truly is an experience not to be missed.
Racegoers can place bets in person with a variety of independent trackside bookmakers. There are also stands placed in the main pavilion where you can bet with Tote. In addition, Thirsk has a public wifi service available which allows all racegoers to connect to the internet via their mobile devices and bet online with any online racing bookmaker of their choice.
This method gives access to some of the best betting offers available, and also forces trackside bookies to become more competitive and offer better prices. That said, the track bookmakers are finding it hard to compete, so make sure you shop around online before you hand over your money.
