The first record of racing beginning at York occurred in 1530.  The original racecourse was much subjected to flooding and moved to its Knavesmire location in the 18th century recording its first meeting in 1530.

Situated just outside the city centre, the famous grandstands of York racecourse dominate the skyline.  York boasts some of the largest racegoer attendances of any course in the country as well hosting two major flat racing festivals the Dante and Ebor meetings.

In 2013 Equestrian Art has located its Blue Rider Gallery to exhibit original equine art within the racecourse itself situated opposite the entrance to the County Grandstand.  All members of the public are free to visit to see and purchase the best available contemporary equestrian art during race meetings.
