A list of notable flat horse races which take place annually in Great Britain, under the authority of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), including all conditions races which currently hold Group 1, 2 or 3 status in the European Pattern.

Race distances[edit]

The distances of the races are expressed in miles, furlongs and yards. In 2017 the BHA concluded a racecourse survey and re-measurement which led to some racecourses changing the exact distance of some races, or moving race start points to fit with advertised race distances.[1] The distances in the table below are exact distances, races are often commonly referred to by the nearest whole distance – e.g. The Derby's exact is 1 mile 4 furlongs and 6 yards but in practise it will be called a 1-mile 4 furlong race.
