Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in Bangor-on-Dee near Wrexham, Wales.[1]

It is a left-handed National Hunt racecourse, and does not have a grandstand.[1]

History[edit]

Racing first took place at Bangor on Dee Racecourse in February 1859,[1] and has since taken place regularly except during the wars.[1]

Since 2006 Bangor has also hosted amateur Point-to-Point races run by local hunts. The course for the Point-to-Point is on the inside of the main track and races are run right-handed.

In May 2012, all former Tote betting positions were replaced by the racecourse's own in-house bangorBET betting system.

The Clerk of the Course is Andrew Morris, who is also Clerk of the Course at sister track Chester, where flat racing takes place.
