Known for its heavy industry past as a part of the West Midlands powerhouse during the industrial revolution, Wolverhampton's legacy is primarily in aerospace engineering and motorsports. A city with rich historic, sporting and cultural traditions too, horseracing has featured since 1887 and today continues in Wolverhampton Racecourse which in addition to providing some superb flat race fixtures contains first class hotel and conference facilities.

Free Horse Racing Tips, Click Here! A multi-purpose leisure event venue, Wolverhampton racecourse has undergone significant development in recent years and plans are afoot to expand the hotel facilities and to incorporate a casino into the on-course facilities.

Providing major leisure opportunities for the city's population and visitors, Wolverhampton races are very much a social experience in the city with evening meetings proving particularly popular.

The evening fixtures at the racecourse are made possible by the kind of technological advances with which Wolverhampton and the West Midlands have always been associated.

The first racecourse in the country to have floodlights installed, Wolverhampton also incorporated an all-weather Fibresand track in 1993 alongside the traditional turf track.

In 2004 both tracks were replaced with one synthetic Polytrack surface, widely regarded as the best synthetic racing surface available.

While the all weather floodlit surface means racing can take place at any time in any conditions, the shape of the track itself offers up additional challenges for participants. A tight one mile oval with left hand turns makes it unusual in Britain and in combination with the synthetic surface means Wolverhampton has more in common with American racetracks. Course specialists are therefore very much favoured here and good bets are those with some consistent form going into the Wolverhampton fixtures. Front runners and those who rely on their endurance and stamina are often outdone by superior tactical awareness.

What the track loses in predictability it certainly gains in functionality and with some 90 fixtures held throughout the year, Wolverhampton is Britain's busiest racetrack.

Plenty of opportunities then for catching some exciting Wolverhampton races, the course proves enduringly popular with well established and knowledgeable race crowds as well as those looking simply for a unique day or evening out in the heart of the city.
