York Ebor Festival


World class racing returns to ‘God’s Own County’ for the Welcome to Yorkshire Ebor
Festival, the jewel in the crown of York Racecourse. The course, known as the Knavesmire,
has been a favourite amongst racegoers since it was founded in 1731. The Ebor Festival
itself was established in 1843 with the first running of the Ebor Handicap. The Festival offers
four days of top class sport featuring three Group 1 races: the Juddmonte International
Stakes, the Darley Yorkshire Oaks and the Coolmore Nunthorpe Stakes.
