Wolverhampton Racecourse

Wolverhampton Racecourse is a horse-racing track in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, United Kingdom. It opened in 1887, at the Dunstall Park

History of Wolverhampton Racecourse

1825 – Racing began in Wolverhampton at Broad Meadows.

1878 – Racing ceased when the course owner, the Duke of Cleveland, sold it to the Corporation.

1887 – The Dunstall Park Club Company was formed in 1887 and worked towards re-establishing a meeting at Wolverhampton on a 130-acre site it purchased. A new course was formed at Dunstall Park (the current location of the racecourse).

1888 – The first race meeting held in Dunstall Park was on August 13, 1888.

1993 – The course was redeveloped with floodlights and a new all-weather Fibresand track that ran alongside the turf track in December 1993. At the same time, a hotel, new Grandstand, restaurant, and executive boxes were also established.

1994 – HRH Queen Elizabeth II reopened the new Wolverhampton Racecourse.

1999 – Arena Leisure purchased the privately-owned Racetrack.

2004 – The Fibresand and turf tracks were replaced with a single Polytrack surface, then commenced to host flat all-weather races only.

2014 – The Polytrack surface was replaced with a brand new Tapeta track, making it the first British course to adopt the new artificial surface, which was already popular with many venues in North America.  The course reopened on August 11, 2014.
