Have a look at the 'streetmap' website, or a decent map, like I have done!

There is a rail line which heads North out of York - the first stop is THIRSK and on that line, this is the nearest to Ripon, but it is still a fair distance away. Interestingly though, it is right next to the new Thirsk racecourse so perhaps you could see if there is a meet there instead!

Second option is a rail line which heads West out of York, it terminates at Harrogate - where you would probably easily get a bus to Ripon, or you could get off a bit earlier at Knaresborough - which might help you avoid the Harrogate traffic, which can be hectic in my experience!

The railway station in Ripon closed in the late '60s, sadly, though there was some talk of reinstating the Harrogate-Northallerton route several years ago.

I was going to suggest that your best bet may be to get a 36 bus from Harrogate to Ripon, and then a taxi to the racecourse...

...however, I just found this on the Web, which says that there's a bus service from Harrogate or York to the racecourse. You'll have to phone for more info:
