“the rain held off”

The evening meeting on the 4th June was my second visit to this lovely little course. It had rained all day but fortunately this stopped in time and although it threatened again we stayed dry. The course did not look its best and the rain had turned the going heavy so that there were lots of non-runners and smallish fields. Nevertheless, a good night and will return perhaps later in the summer to see the course and racing at its best.

Not Premier League to use a football analogy but Ripon is certainly a friendly and fun place to spend some time. Good value, good facilities and fair prices make for a good few hours whether and afternoon or evening meeting.

I've been here several times and, although the Members enclosure gets the best facilities, the Tattersalls is still good value for money at £14. It was even better midweek as we got a two for one with John Smiths website. Even better!

The bar and food in members has moved up a gear from a few years ago we used the underground/ground floor bar area in members and they have spent lots of money which was lacking before. Well done for the improvements.

Have visited Ripon races several times over the years and have always had a superb day out. The view of the racing is very good from the main stands but from the seats high up in the county stand is superb. Would advise you to pay a little more & go in the county stand.
The fish and chips are lovely and always enjoy them.

An enjoyable day at the race meeting last Saturday. The race course was easy to find, well signposted from the main road. Free and ample parking. £15 entry but cheaper for students and concessions. A reasonable choice of bars and eateries including the very popular old fashioned sweet shop. There are on course bookmakers and the tote so plenty of choice for betting. There was 7 races and a good quality field. No winners for me but my son won £100 so a good day all round. A really nice traditional racecourse in the country side, well worth the visit.
