Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse is a thoroughbred horse racing venue located in Bangor-on-Dee near Wrexham, Wales.[1]

It is a left-handed National Hunt racecourse, and doesn't have a Grandstand.[1]


Racing first took place at Bangor on Dee Racecourse on February 1859,[1] and has since taken place regularly except during the wars.[1]

Since 2006 Bangor has also hosted amateur Point-to-Point races run by local hunts. The course for the Point-to-Point is on the inside of the main track and races are run right handed.
