Day Four

York Ebor Festival 2016 - Day Four

The highlight of Day Four at the 2016 Ebor Meeting is the prestigious Ebor Handicap which is of course the richest handicap in Europe and always attracts a top class field of runners. The day however starts off with the City Of York Stakes over seven furlongs at 2.00: There are six races in all.

Once again this year the Ebor Handicap itself will be run on the Saturday of the meeting having moved from its traditional mid-week slot in 2012. It is hoped that the big race will attract a bumper crowd to the course with viewing figures also playing a part in the decision to move the race. As well as the Ebor, the Lonsdale Cup is always a race to follow for the staying horses who we have followed throughout the season.
