The Ebor Festival at York brings together the very best horses, trainers and jockeys from the UK & Ireland, and is also the home of some great horse racing free bets, as bookmakers gear up for a thrilling week of racing.
The 2021 York Ebor Festival is now over, and all attention has turned to 2022 and other big flat racing meetings that are scheduled to take place later in 2021.
The Yorkshire Ebor meeting takes place towards the back end of August with 2022 dates now confirmed as Wednesday August 17 – Saturday August 20, 2022.
Taking place at York racecourse, it’s the city’s pride and joy, welcoming major races such as the Juddmonte International, the Yorkshire Oaks and the Strensall Stakes.
It’s been running since 1843 and continues to be one of the must visit, and must bet on, horse racing events in the north of England.
Down the years we’ve seen the likes of Frankel and Enable succeed, but which horses will be jotting their names into Ebor Festival folklore this summer?
One thing the Ebor Festival is fantastic for is the free bets and betting offers. Throughout August, top bookmakers offer a range of Ebor betting promotions including free bets, enhanced odds and no deposit offers.
You’ll find all of those right here. At Freebets.com we’re always on the lookout for the best free bets, with all of our favourites found on our homepage.
The likes of Paddy Power always offer great odds on major horse racing events, and this one will likely be no different, while you can already enjoy up to £100 in free bets with bet365, ideal for the ante-post betting markets!
