History


Racing was first recorded in 1715, when a lease was granted by the Yarmouth Corporation to a group of innkeepers for some land to be used for the race meetings. The races began fully in the eighteenth century, and often coincided with the annual town fair. In the early days events such as donkey races and chasing a pig were held. Finally in 1810 the official Racing Calendar begin to record meetings with thoroughbred horse races and prize money. Not until 1866 did the number of fixtures start to increase.
