About Towcester Horse Racing Course
Horse Racing Tips UK IRELANDTowcester Racecourse is a horse racing course at Towcester (pronounced "Toaster") in Northamptonshire, England. Recently rebuilt, it hosts National Hunt Rules race meetings (over jumps) in the Winter months. It is situated on the Easton Neston estate. The first meeting took place in 1928. The Towcester Racecourse Company was formed under the direction of Lord Hesketh, and it was on his estate that course has evolved.

The first grandstand was built at this time. Towcester is highly popular among the racing fraternity, because of the sharp bends in the course, and the final gallop to the finishing post is uphill, which tests the horses and results in some unexpected finishes. In 2004 the Easton Neston estate, including the race course was put up for sale. Hesketh later decided to retain ownership of the course and sold only a portion of the estate to a Russian-born businessman.

Entry was free from 2002 until 2006, during which time the course saw attendance grow significantly. In mid-2006, it was accounced that from December 26, 2006 Towcester will be charging for entry to their two most popular annual meetings; Boxing Day and Easter Sunday. All other meetings remain free.
