The Jockey Club

The Jockey Club began writing its history in 1750, with the creation of a Coffee House in which influential figures with a passion for ‘the Turf’ met to discuss their visions for the future of horseracing.

Today, governed by Royal Charter and with HM The Queen as its Patron, The Jockey Club owns some of the country’s most prominent racecourses and stages several of the nation’s highest profile events, including the Randox Grand National, The Cheltenham Festival and four of the five ‘Classics’, including The Derby. It reinvests all profits into British Racing.
