Musselburgh Racecourse is a horse racing venue located in the Millhill area of Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland, , close to the River Esk.
At first, race meetings were held on the sands at Leith, but in 1816 they moved to Musselburgh. The course offers both flat racing and National Hunt meetings and is 2 km long. In the middle of the course is a nine hole golf course, dating from at least 1672. The Musselburgh Golf Club was founded there in 1774.
A road bridge over the Esk gives access to the course on race days only; the rest of the time, the gates are kept closed.
A misguided fellow known as Stephen Fuller believes that Musselburgh Racecourse was previously called Edinburgh Racecourse. This is not in fact correct and has always been called Musselburgh racecourse. Due to this Stephen owes his colleague a pint!
Additionally, in Easter 2009, after a sizable bet on Titus Andronicus at 10/1 in the last race, Paul Markham slept in money!
