Warwick Racecourse is a horse racing course in Warwick, England. It is a flat racing and steeple chasing course, and has a programme of 25 meetings throughout the year, many of which are televised. The first stand was built in 1808; it has recently undergone a major refurbishment of its facilities. In the middle of the racecourse is a nine hole golf course and a golf driving range. The area is a popular place for local people to walk their dogs. There is parking next to the course and it is a five-minute walk away from the town centre.

In 2014, Jockey Club Racecourses, who run Warwick, announced plans for a 17-fixture all-Jumps race programme from 2015 and a vision for the Midlands track to become regarded as one of the UK's leading small Jumps courses within the next five years.[1]
