Tips for Pontefract Races

Situated in West Yorkshire, racing first took place in 1648 and remains Flat only. Traditionally the afternoon fixtures didn’t begin until 2.45pm so that miners at the adjacent colliery could finish the morning shift in time to go racing. But in 2002 the colliery shut down so this is no longer the case.

Course: The emphasis is very much on stamina for our tips here as the two mile circuit has a steep final three furlongs which is stiff and takes plenty of getting.

Draw Bias: No major bias to consider, however if our tips are drawn near the rail and are fast starters, this can be an advantage particularly over shorter distances.

Feature Races: Throughout the season Pontefract hosts five Listed races:

  • Pontefract Castle Stakes (June)
  • Pomfret Stakes (July)
  • Pipalong Stakes (August)
  • Flying Fillies’ Stakes (August)
  • Silver Tankard Stakes (October)
