All Weather Championships

All Weather Horse Racing At Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton Racecourse is home to All Weather racing between October and April each year, and is one of six racecourses in the UK that host hundreds of all weather fixtures in this time frame.

All Weather Championships

The All Weather Championships (AWC) was created over 20 years ago, with the aim of encouraging Owners and Trainers to keep their horses in training during the winter months. With six categories to compete in, the Championship is designed to test every horse, jockey and trainer and dominates around a fifth of the British fixture list.

All Weather Horse Track

Wolverhampton Racecourse was the first track in the UK to use a Tapeta surface. Unhappy with the performance of the previous Polytrack surface, the Tapeta track was completed in 2014, and has received excellent reviews from jockeys, trainers and owners. The track also made history by holding the first evening horse race under floodlights in 1993.

The All-Weather Championships, especially the £1 million Finals Day at Lingfeld Park on Good Friday, are now an established part of the British Racing Calendar. While the All-Weather Championships were initially the idea of Arena Racing Company (ARC), everyone at ARC is enormously grateful to the support we have received from all in British Racing in helping ensure the All-Weather Championships have proved a success from the outset.”
