Bangor-on-Dee is set within the glorious Welsh countryside overlooked by picturesque Welsh hills, near Wrexham in Wales.
It is a left handed National Hunt course and the first race took place at Bangor on Dee in February 1859 and little modernisation has taken place since as it is the only racecourse in the United Kingdom that does not yet have a grandstand, which adds to the charm of the venue.
Since 2006 the course has also played host to amateur Point-to-Point races which are ran by local hunts, these races are ran on the inside of the main track. It holds races throughout the year (at least one per month) and generally has 16 race meetings a year.
The ground has been a successful course for 2010 Sports Personality of the Year, Tony McCoy recently and he has firmly installed himself as the top jockey for the course. It has also been a place of good fortune for trainers Jonjo O´Neill and Donald McCain Jnr.
