When & Where Is The Yorkshire Ebor Meeting?

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?
