|Horse racing has been a popular attraction in
Wolverhampton for over 180 years thanks to the race
courses at Broad Meadows and Dunstall Park. Right from
the word go, large numbers of people came from near a
far to enjoy a day at the races. Most of the country's
top horses and riders have competed here, and this has
been so since the early years at Broad Meadows.
Today Wolverhampton has the only race course in the
West Midlands. Horses have been competing at Dunstall
Park for over 120 years and it is well known throughout
the country. It is also well known locally for the many
other events and activities, not linked with horse
racing, that take place there.
