The history of thoroughbred Horse Racing in Norton, Malton and the surrounding area dates back to the 1600s.

Langton Wold Racecourse meetings are recorded from before 1692 and by the time of its loss to enclosure and the plough in 1862, Langton Wold had come to be regarded as one of the finest courses in England.

Trainer John Scott dominated the sport between 1832 and 1862 winning nearly ever classic! His stables were at Whitewall. When William L’Annson’s Blink Bonnie won the Epsom Derby in 1857 “Malton Church bells rang… and the pubs stayed open all night”.

Today, the history of horse training continues with both Langton Wold and Highfield being used as gallops for the racing fraternity in the Norton and Malton area. There are currently more than 20 trainers in the area.
