Leicester Racecourse

Opened in 1883, Leicester Racecourse is a two-mile circuit that hosts both National Hunt and flat meets. The tough uphill finish is made harder in soft or heavy going, with runners often winning from behind. The Listed King Richard III Stakes, held in April, was formerly known as the Leicestershire Stakes and renamed in 2013 after the remains of King Richard III were found near the city.
