Stratford-on-Avon Racecourse, also known as simply Stratford Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire, England.

Stratford Racecourse hosts a number of meets. Unlike races at Ascot Racecourse or Epsom Racecourse, the attire is considerably more casual. Although each year includes a Ladies Day competition, prizes include vouchers, gifts. For the last two years, Ladies Day entries have been chosen by the midlands-born designer Laura Jane Design. Although a leading racecourse, the actual course is fairly small, holding race meets from March until November each year. The racecourse has three enclosures: the Club Enclosure, Tattersall Enclosure and the Centre Course.

Stratford Racecourse is also the home of Stratford Touring Park, a campsite comprising 192 grass pitches and facilities for caravans, tents and motorhomes. A large centre course is used for rallies and events most notably the annual Motorhome and Caravan show in June, Blue Rodeo and CAMRA Beer Festival in August.
