Bet on Chelmsford City Racecourse Racecards

The racecourse was originally known as Great Leighs, with this being a Flat Polytrack course where there are exclusively Chelmsford City races which are run on flat ground and no obstacles such as fences and hurdles.

What Are the Big Chelmsford City Races?

Racegoers attend all the big Chelmsford City race cards meetings, although there are three notable races and the first of these is the Cardinal Stakes, with this race occurring in April over the distance of one mile. The first ever running of the Cardinal Stakes was actually in 2019 and this was won by the Andrew Balding-trained Bye Bye Hong Kong.

Although this one-mile encounter is a relatively new Chelmsford City race on the calendar, it also comprises the European Road to the Kentucky Derby series and that means horses can earn points and run in one of the biggest horse races in the United States of America.

The Chelmer Fillies' Stakes is run over six furlongs and you can get three-year-old fillies who are competing around this left-handed track and it’s a stiff test of pure pace, with the race created as a Listed race in 2019 and it was won by Isaan Queen who was trained by Archie Watson.

The final notable race taking place on the Chelmsford City betting market is the Queen Charlotte Fillies’ Stakes, with this being a seven-furlong encounter which is open to any filly or mare that is aged four or over. The race was inaugurated in 2018 and the first ever winner was Carolinae, while other winners have been Billesdon Brook and Miss Celestial.
